  • Open Source Press Relations

    by fuzzychef

    You have a really cool open source project and everyone should see it, try it, and use it. But ... they don't seem to know about it. How can you make sure your project gets the press coverage it deserves? More importantly, how can you do it without compromising your open source community relationships and principles?

    Josh Berkus will go over the methods he's used for the last 7 years to publicize both the OpenOffice.org and the PostgreSQL projects. He'll also show you how you can use OSS methods and tools not just to get PR done, but to get it done *better* than proprietary methods.

    Slides will be up at http://www.pgexperts.com/present... by the end of the conference.

    At 11:20am to 12:05pm, Wednesday 17th June

  • Project Management Should be Boring!

    by chromatic

    Many software projects suffer from long release schedules, feature freezes, painful QA processes, awkward merges, version number debates, backwards compatibility paralysis -- oh, and customers who aren't completely delighted.

    Project management doesn't have to be this way.

    Several real-world projects have solved these problems with a combination of iteration, refactoring, continual improvement, reflection, and low-ceremony processes. The solutions aren't all simple or easy, but they're easy to understand, and they're within your grasp. This talk will tell you what's possible and recommend concrete steps to improve your project management.

    At 3:50pm to 4:35pm, Thursday 18th June
