The open source Logstash project has always been a journey of both software and community. The "open" in "open source" has special meaning to me. It means open arms, open minds, and open hearts.
In this talk, I will present Logstash as a community of humans being prioritized over software. I'll explore influences on and lessons learned in building this community. I will also discuss planned future improvements to make the land of Logstashians an even stronger community
"If a new user has a bad time, it's a bug." has been a mantra for years with the Logstash project, and it's proven a wonderful foundation for the the tone within community. Contrast that mantra with the dismissive "RTFM" - negative tone and dismissing the user as being too lazy.
It is my hope that this talk will raise your expectations of what an open source community can be, and show how a community of humans can build great things, create jobs, resolve conflicts, and reduce stress.
We're all in this together, after all.
