Judging from my industry friends, some time in their professional career (usually later), the teaching bug bites them and they wonder about passing on their knowledge to a new generation of industrialists and entrepreneurs. A regular position as a professor at a German public university or a polytechnic (university of applied sciences) is often unattainable because of age and a missing or limited publication record, and even though I’d recommend it, contributing as an unpaid lecturer and building up a vita to go for an honorary professor position seems unattractive.Continue reading “Should You Be Teaching at a Venture-Backed Private College?”
We will be hosting an industry talk on what happens when Project = 1 Team stops being feasible: Scaling methods, tools and skills, online and IRL. The talk is free and open to the public.

Eberhard Wolff just published the recording of my lunch chat on Software Architektur TV with him. Our topic was inner source and how to tear down firm-internal silos for better code reuse, more knowledge sharing, and generally more satisfied employees. Check it out below (local copy) or visit Eberhard’s site for it!
Or, just take a look at @teapot4181‘s fabulous visual summary.Continue reading “Video for Breaking Down Organizational Silos with Inner Source (in German)”
I just read Nagle et al.’s Report on the 2020 FOSS Contributor Survey. They find that about 50% of contributors are paid by their employers to work on open source software. This confirms a 2013 paper on paid vs. volunteer work in open source of ours, which also suggested that about half of all development takes place on company time. The rub: Our paper used rather old, pre-Github times data from 2007 (culled from Ohloh, now OpenHub).
Does this mean that in the last 15 years or so corporate engagement in open source has remained stable?Continue reading “Company Support for Open Source Stable for 15 Years Now?!”
This coming Friday, December 11th, 2020, at noon CET, I’ll be a guest in Eberhard Wolff’s Software Architektur lunch chat. Our topic is how to break down organizational silos using open source methods, which is, you guessed it, using inner source. Join me through Software Architektur TV and send us your questions in advance (or live)!
