Launching an Internal Developer Community

location_city Online schedule Dec 8th 12:20 - 01:05 PM place Room 1

Community is nothing new to developers. Just look at the open source movement, the numerous conferences, and the growth of collaborative resources like GitHub and Stack Overflow. Developers know the best solutions come from collaboration. In many respects, community is a superpower for innovation and problem solving.

So why is community so difficult to establish inside companies? It would seem like a natural opportunity given the collective nature and shared vision of being part of an organization. Yet when I visit most companies, community and collaboration are sorely lacking, and sometimes even discouraged.

In this talk, I share practices from my journey while at Stack Overflow and in other communities I have over the past decade to help all of us in the journey towards building healthy and thriving internal developer communities.
