As open source software is embraced by the enterprise, companies are starting to look at more than just the technical aspect of open source projects. Building a community around these open source projects is extremely important. They are also vital to create because they provide support to the individuals who are working together on the same project. It brings a sense of unity, and can be made possible through processes such as communication, inter-group relations, tools, and networking.

Starting the base for a vibrant community is not always easy or straightforward and is often not the first thing engineers and developers are thinking about.

Want to learn more about how to build an active, and diverse community in your organization and maybe even have it expand company wide?

In this presentation, I will discuss practical tips on how to change an organization’s mindset towards embracing open source and inclusiveness, community building, and how to find resources to start contributing upstream. I will discuss the techniques, the tools, and the practices needed to get started and have an impact.
