4:00pm to 4:00pm
User Groups and Mailing lists had been the building blocks of Open Source adoption for long time already. While Mailing Lists are great to discuss problems and ideas in a global world, User Groups are the ones who tackle localized adoption. User Groups talk to governments and companies and they are the best place to bond between users from same geographical area to discuss about common local legal and social concerns. Five years passed since we started the BSD User Group in "Universidad de Buenos Aires" and we achieved many things, including co-organization with another Group of BSDday-Argentina conference which will have its 5th edition this year. While we grew as community, we made many mistakes and we had learned a few lesson from them. We discuss our vision of how to run a successful Open Source community and what are the most common issues you may find in the process. Afterwards, we present some ideas on how to avoid repeating our mistakes and how to palliate them if you had already committed them.
