First Annual State of InnerSource Commons Survey

Open Source continues to play an important role in the software industry, not only because of the many high quality open source software products, but also because organizations increasingly realize that open development approaches offer many benefits. Hence, many organizations are leveraging the open source development paradigm within their boundaries. Tim O'Reilly coined the term InnerSource for this. In the past few years, InnerSource is gaining much attention from companies around the globe. In 2015, the InnerSource Commons community was founded by Danese Cooper from PayPal, and the community is growing quickly, with over 120 members in the InnerSource Commons Slack channel. This community of software professionals are experimenting with open source development practices to overcome the many barriers and challenges that exist in many software organizations. The goal of this First Annual State of InnerSource Commons survey was to establish a first baseline of how organizations adopt InnerSource. The survey addresses many aspects, including development methods, practices, quality assurance, tools, and motivation and organizational support. The InnerSource Commons is a vibrant and active community, and we invite you to join, learn from the community, and share your own experiences!

  • Wang H.
  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...
