It's OK to be Average

A session at Open Source Bridge 2013

Tuesday 18th June, 2013

2:30pm to 3:15pm (PST)

We regularly talk about how to get new people into an open source project, how to get the most out of our volunteers, and how to encourage people to become more involved.

This talk will work on the other side of that equation: meeting contributors where they're at, welcoming folk who might not want to become core committers, learning what our projects can do to be more open to all.

And in the process, you'll get a healthier, more vibrant, and much more diverse community. How cool is that!?

We'll look at some examples of projects that do this well (and not so well!), talk through little things you can implement to make big changes, and cover both the technical and social sides of contributor care and feeding.
