An Open Source Story

A session at Cascadia Ruby 2012

Saturday 4th August, 2012

4:00pm to 4:30pm (PST)

Many developers want to contribute to open source, either by starting their own projects or giving back to a previous one. However, too many developers consider open source a basic switch that once you turn on and pray that success follows. In fact, open source is much more than this, and in this talk I'll teach you the components that make up a successful open source project by telling a story -- my story -- which spans 2.5 years of my life spent creating Vagrant.
