I joined Jim Hall, Jen Krieger, and Jamie Rachel for a panel moderated by Sam Kimbrel at the inaugural Practical Open Source Information (POSI) conference. We discussed the challenges that open source communities present and how they can benefit from project management.
Abstract: Whether you’re an experienced project manager or new to the field, project management in open source projects presents unique challenges. Developers work separately but together, sometimes bouncing back and forth depending on their interests. Project managers need to adapt to the elastic nature of open source communities. In this session, panelists will answer real-life questions about how to apply the principles of project management in a way that’s natural to open source projects.
