Reflecting on Grass-roots Innersource - Aaron Searle

February 11, 2021


Guest Speaker: Aaron Searle, VP of Engineering, Morgan Stanley presented on "Reflecting on Grass-roots Innersource"

This video is from a live webinar conducted for the FINOS Open Source Readiness (OSR) project. The OSR project meets bi-weekly for guest presentations, knowledge-sharing between financial industry firms solving similar issues on their road to open source readiness, and discussion of open source strategy. Take a look at upcoming FINOS events like this and join us!

This particular webinar for OSR featured the second in a series of collaborations between FINOS and InnerSource Commons. Aaron's presentation was integral in showing how InnerSource can work from the ground up in banks, even when there is not a top-down emphasis (yet), highlighting collaboration efforts of different groups. 

Panelists from this OSR session also discussed Aaron's questions on how to get better at InnerSourcing in early stages within your organization.
