Github is a great developer and collaboration tool, especially for HR Open’s distributed standards development projects. Although HR Open uses Github as intended, we wanted to share some notes on our usage guidelines within the workgroups.
Stop by and say hi to the HR Open team at booth #758. Meet our Board Members who are real-life practitioners and executors of the standards. Talk to one of our staff members who can answer all your questions about standards. Learn about how our standards have been downloaded by over 50,000 organizations including Walmart, SAP, Microsoft, and Accenture. To set up a meeting contact Kim today, we look forward to seeing you soon!

A Quick Look into the Past
Towards the end of the 19th century, electrical engineering became one of the core engines of the second industrial revolution. As Nicholas Carr put it, in "The Big Switch," manufacturing energy provided factories "with a decisive advantage over other manufacturers. The company was able to expand the yield and efficiency of its factory. [...] Like other factories of the time, they were as much in the business of manufacturing energy as manufacturing goods". This of course, quickly changed, as power plants started to rise and provide energy at a low-cost to everyone.
An aspect that is often overlooked in that story is that none of this could have happened without the emergence of standards.
I recently spoke with Yamini Polisetty, Director of Product Management at SuccessFactors, who is headlining our upcoming European Community Meeting in St. Leon-Rot, Germany on September 15th.
