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 also aims to provide a space to discuss the ways that businesses using an InnerSource approach can learn from, and constructively engage with, Open Source communities. Together we will explore strategies to fund work on open source projects, discuss ways to insure legal compliance, open up the debate on licencing, and talk about project leadership in a community driven environment.
In order to promote diversity & inclusivity at FOSS Backstage we have initiated a Diversity Tickets program. Diversity Tickets are fully sponsored (i.e. free) tickets that are available to people from underrepresented groups within the FOSS community. Learn more about the program here.
Get your ticket now and join us on February, 10-12!
