With software innovation moving into open source, every organization needs to figure out how to unleash the productivity of its developers. Unfortunately, most companies struggle to understand why and how to give their developers more flexibility in contributing to open source projects.

Adobe was no different. Despite being active consumers of open source technologies for years, the company wasn't an active contributor, ranking 37th among all tech companies in terms of contributors. We set about to change that.

In this talk, I'll outline exactly what we did to streamline contributor policies, enlist executive support, and more, which has significantly increased our open source activity (18 months into the transformation, we now rank #14). You'll leave with tangible actions you can take back to your own organization to make it the open source organization it needs to be if you're going to compete, whatever your industry.
