Junkyard Styled Inner Sourcing

Raimund Hook edited this page Mar 27, 2019 · 4 revisions


This pattern has been moved to


  • junkyard styled inner sourcing
  • Finding but deciding not to use the internal component


Two situations:

  • SW component not designed for reuse because the schedule was too tight and did not allow for the extra effort needed
  • Did not have the knowledge or training to create components that can b reused.


  • People don't share something so others can use it; they only share it for the sake of sharing. They wouldn't mind if no one uses it (a bit of a graveyard: "InnerSource is where modules go to die").


Brainstormed pattern idea in progress


  • Georg Grutter
  • Erin Bank
  • Padma Sudarsan
  • Tim Yao
You can’t perform that action at this time.
