Sustainable open source starts with sustainable leadership, and has far reaching impacts for healthy communities and code. Open source maintainers and leaders are struggling with the shared challenge of how to work sustainably, while at the same time fostering a welcoming and inclusive community.
As code becomes a smaller part of the role, it turns into project management, conflict resolution, decision making in uncertain situations, building an inclusive community, and lots and lots of communication. This is not something each leader and maintainer needs to figure out how to do on their own. We can share our approaches, what works and what doesn't work, and connect with each other.
Whether you’re just starting a project, interested in getting involved in open source, or already have a community of thousands, there are some tips, approaches and templates you can use to make maintaining an open source project more manageable. In this talk you’ll learn some key practices for effective open source project leadership.
You’ll walk away with new approaches for making project decisions, strategies to manage user and contributor interactions, and better ways to set boundaries that are right for you and your project's needs. There are tools that can help you navigate your path more easily, and a journey that we can go on together, to help you survive and thrive as an open source leader!
