  • Open Advice

    by Lydia Pintscher

    Come and join us for the release of the Open Advice book. Open Advice is a collaboration of people from many different Free Software projects answering one question: What's one key thing you would have liked to know when you started contributing. We will give a short tour of the book and talk about some of the lessons learned from taking a large-scale book project from idea to publishing.

    At 2:50pm to 3:05pm, Saturday 4th February

  • Succeeding in the Google Summer of Code as a large project

    by Donnie Berkholz

    The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) has been a huge boon to the world of free and open-source software, and to Gentoo Linux in particular. In this talk, I'm going to share some of our successes, like how we manage 15–20 simultaneous internships and how we recruit a very large proportion of our students to continue as Gentoo developers.
