How to community: Anatomy of healthy open source communities and projects
3:45 PM - 4:10 PM EST
We often think of a successful open source project that just tackles a challenge for the greater good. This perception has driven several open source project owners to start innovative open source projects without any plans of managing/sustaining the communities behind these projects, leading to an increase in the number of dormant open source projects. A successful open source project is built on the collaborative effort of a healthy community. An adequately coordinated community can plan and develop projects and unanimously work together to ensure sustainability in project performance. The responsibility of achieving a thriving open source community does not rest on the community managers or the program managers alone but also on the whole community.

- During this session, I will share with you:
- Introduction to open source communities.
- How to build a healthy and open-source community.
- Top open-source best practices to Prioritise in the community.
- The need to adopt the community first approach in a project.
- How to achieve a sustainable & inclusive community.
