North by Northwest (nxnwtech) Tech meetup is a meetup aimed at connecting the NxNW's technology community, the people who are making the North West and the surrounding area's tech scene what it is and those who are interested in keeping up-to-date. We run both in person 'nxnwtech M' and virtual 'nxnwtech V' meetups. Talks are technology focused. If you're a technology professional or enthusiast, and live in or around the NxNW area, we want you to join our meetup. You can also follow and contact us via @nxnwtech on twitter and by following #nxnwtech hashtag.
nxnwtech is delighted to announce our first "V" meetup of 2021 will be on the topic of "InnerSource".
Innersource is a development methodology that takes the lessons learned from developing open source software and applies them to the way companies develop software internally. Martin Woodward from GitHub will explain some of the biggest myths that he runs across when organizations attempt to adopt Inner Source practices and will pass along some of the surprising lessons he has learnt about what really does and doesn't make a difference. Martin is Director of Developer Relations at GitHub who has been recognised by Business Insider as one of the top executives in software development.
