Community Source needs you! The Apereo Foundation fosters community source projects. To support this role the foundation has a dedicated member of staff as the CLE Community Coordinator, Neal Caidin. Neal promotes the needs of the Sakai CLE community. In this presentation Neal Caidin and Alan Berg, a member of the Technical Coordination Council2 (TCC), explore how to participate fully in the community. This presentation will act as a gentle introduction to the well trodden paths to community involvement. Please come prepared with your questions!
