What's It Like Being a Open Source Maintainer Anyway? - Brendan Forster

A session at DDD Perth 2016

Saturday 27th August, 2016

12:00pm to 12:45pm (WST)

Brendan Forster @shiftkey http://brendanforster.com

Open Source seems to be the way of the future for most software development, but what does it actually look like day to day for those people who are helping to shepherd projects both big and small.

In this talk, I will walk through my experiences - the ups and downs - of being involved with a number of open source projects over the previous few years - as a maintainer, advisor and keen observer. I will share what things I've seen succeed on projects, what things need to be addressed, and share some thoughts on what the future hold for creating sustainable projects might look like.
