What makes an open source project flourish? Why do some projects fail to build a sustainable community while others become a cornerstone of the software landscape? We want to encourage more discourse about the non-coding aspects of successful open source projects.
FOSS Backstage will provide a space to discuss a broad spectrum of issues related to community management, vendor neutrality and leading projects without discretionary power. Conference topics will include open source project leadership best practices, community management, open source project metrics, open source strategy for the enterprise, adopting open source collaboration in corporations, legal matters when dealing with open source and many more.
