Session: Open Source Is Not Just About Code: Effective Strategies for Collaboration
Open Source Software relies on distributed teams of volunteers committing to further the project along. How do you do that effectively when traversing cultures, geography and spoken languages? How do you welcome new people and grow the involvement of existing contributors? Is it possible to craft a discourse that is inviting to critique while also maintaining respect for all? We will examine these questions and more in this session and dive into concrete examples of how to make our open source communities more resilient and more diverse.
