Create & Grow: Your Open-Source Community

Research shows that the world’s most successful companies don’t just use open-source software (OSS) — they contribute too. Once the domain of tech companies, OSS has gathered momentum. But open-source adoption can be challenging for more traditional organisations that guard IP closely. How can these organisations launch and grow their own open-source communities?
Yetunde Dada and Katherine Shenton will discuss how firms can tackle OSS, from bringing internal stakeholders along on the journey to presenting products in a way that engages the global developer community. They will draw from their own experiences launching Kedro, the acclaimed first open-source product released by McKinsey & Company, and its centre of excellence in artificial intelligence and machine learning, QuantumBlack.
