This is bigger than us: Building a future for Open Source

A session at JSIst: Istanbul JavaScript Conference

Saturday 27th September, 2014

10:00am to 10:40am (IMT)

This talk takes you on a journey during which we’ll take a close look at the culture in Open Source Communities, its status, relevance and why this culture is the key to building the future of OSS.

We’ll think about the core values of Open Source, amongst them freedom, democracy and decentralization, take a look at software-development as an act of representation and find out why diversity (regarding gender, skills, ethnicities and ideas / backgrounds) and user-centered approaches will be core determinants when we want to build a future for Open Source.

This talk aims to encourage everyone of us to broaden our horizons when it comes to how far we can go collectively with all our Open Source projects when we’re thinking about their future, - and it wants to show how widening our communities, aiming for diversity and sustainability will enable us to build this future together.
