To discuss the growth of the CyanogenMod Project and the challenges around scaling it’s unique position as both a community and a retail OS.
This talk will describe the structure, processes, and struggle in coordinating an Open platform with thousands of volunteers globally. Code, techincal merit, issue management, conflict resolution and clashes in vision all play a factor when dealing at this scale. I’ll be discussing how CyanogenMod has addressed these items for a unique view into the largest third party Android OS.
