Keeping the Lawyers Happy, Keeping the Developers Happy, and Making Your Boss Happier - Dave Stokes, Oracle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Your contributors want to contribute but your corporate lawyers want to make sure what they are contributing is the property of the contributors. Your lawyers want to make sure everything is 'legal' and have this wonderful 210 page document they want to be submitted with each line of code. And your bosses want these code gems included ASAP but didn't they see that code someplace else before? Welcome to managing contributions in a big corporation!
