Since 2018 Tencent has committed to building open-source culture inside the company. This includes learning from the industry standards, encouraging internal and external collaboration and contributing our practices and tools to the community. However, challenges come along  with us all with way: legacy codebases, lack of motivation, competition between teams and low-engagement with communities.

To overcome these challenges, I together with Tencent OSS team have developed multiple game thinking and game-based tools that are used in a strategic manner to boost opensource inside the company. This includes: building innersource communities, awarding the best-practice projects, building stackoverflow-like forum internally, setting up an opensource leaderboard, awarding each milestone of an open-source project, interviewing top contributors. We've found that these gamification strategies can significantly increase the engagement, awareness of opensource inside the company.
