Apparating a platform with InnerSource

Join me for a fun and engaging story of an amazingly successful case study featuring a company-wide platform that began without a funded team.

I was an individual application engineer at Nike when I came up with the idea of a company-wide web deployment platform. Unable to get funding for a team to build it, I partnered, created, and rallied an internal development community that took this idea from a Skunk Works side project to running 88% of all web projects at the company. Join me for the fun, entertaining, and inspiring story of how it happened and what lessons you can apply to your own dreams of internal development and deployment platforms.
