No, I Won't Contribute to Your Open Source Project

A session at Open Source Bridge 2013

Wednesday 19th June, 2013

4:45pm to 5:30pm (PST)

The growth of the open community is inspiring. Every year more governments mandate the use of open standards. New peer reviewed journals promise free access to publicly funded research. Thousands of companies release new software projects to the open source environment.

Yet despite this, most projects find it remarkably difficult to get people to contribute.


This session will be a data-driven led discussion aimed toward exposing problems people have with contributing to open source projects and strategies for improving the situation.
