In 2015 Target quickly changed its policy, making it okay for developers to contribute to open source. This talk is a collection of all things that a team of self organized individuals did to make this happen bottoms up. The lessons we learned and the protips we share can be applied at other big companies to make the same kind of change happen. Dan will cover things like:

* The low friction processes we put in place for contributing to existing open source and for open sourcing whole projects
* Getting executive support
* Getting all the peripheral stakeholders organized (public relations, legal, IP, etc)
* Standing up a proper open source office
* Incentivising developers
* Seamlessly applying what you do with open source to your company's inner source efforts
* Measuring your open source goals
* And much more
