Building and maintaining open source communities

A presentation at OSCON in in Portland, OR, USA by Mary Thengvall

Being successful in creating an open source community requires planning, measurements, and clear goals. But it’s less clear why you’re doing this, who you’re targeting, and how you can achieve your goals.

Mary Thengvall, Jason Hibbets, Sherrie Rohde, Mike Jang, and Angie Jones share their firsthand experiences of how open source communities have directly attributed to the success of a product as well as best practices to build and maintain these communities.
