The Joys of Being A Maintainer

A session at .NET Fringe Conference

Tuesday 14th April, 2015

11:15am to 11:45am (PST)

"If you've never open sourced your code, you're probably missing out on the joys of collaborating with other developers. From answering support questions to reviewing code and even submitting patches for bugfixes or new features, there's many ways for others to help improve and enhance the work you've started.

So what actually happens after you've published some code you're really proud of? What can you do to make it easier for others to collaborate on your code? And what traps should you watch for as you start down this path?

In this talk, Brendan, Justin and Keith will discuss some of the common situations that come up after opening up a project to contributions, and talk about lessons learned along the way.
