Anatomy of an Open Source Project: Key Factors to Success - Guy Martin, Samsung

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

More and more companies are starting their own open source projects, and many (like Samsung, Intel, HP, etc.) have dedicated teams working on open source as 'external R&D.' It's important to understand what makes an open source project successful - whether you're starting your own project, or evaluating why and how to participate in an existing one. It takes more than just great code! In this presentation, Guy Martin will cover the basic anatomy and key features of open source projects that work. Governance, licensing, development methodology, and cultural factors like openness and technical/business transparency are just a few of the topics that will be covered. Guy will also discuss how open infrastructure components like mailings lists, IRC, git, etc. help make an open source project successful.
