In this talk we present the challenging journey of the conception and growth of the Open Source Office at HERE Technologies from its start in 2016 till the present day.

New ways of software development are of great benefit to a company, enabling it to work smarter - delivering more code, more quickly to more people with roughly the same amount of people - all of which can have a positive impact on it’s bottom line. However, it’s also a very complex puzzle that can lead to big risks if you don’t have the right set up to support OSS reviews and contributions to the community.

In this talk, you will learn from our experience in setting up an OSS office within the company grass route up with a small team and limited budget. We will talk about how to get organizational buy-ins, and some of the steps that we could have done better/smarter.
