Open source infrastructure: another path of growth for open source
Submitted by Amye (@amye) on Wednesday, 12 April 2017
Full talk of 40 mins duration
A community lead and a continuous integration architect walk into a room and argue about the best practices around developing your infrastructure to support your growth as an open source project. Items of conversation will include: Configuration management, effective discovery for legacy systems, access control management as a tool for community growth, creating compromise between different stakeholder groups, and models for iteration in an open source environment. The overall goal for this session is answering the question about how to resolve the balance between closed access and open contribution for a project ecosystem. GlusterFS is the model project discussed here, but this is a conversation about governance through open source infrastructure.
- configuration management as an invitation for new contributors
- effective discovery for legacy systems,
- access control management as a tool for community growth,
- creating compromise between different stakeholder groups
- models for iteration in an open source environment.
When she’s not flinging herself in pressurized mental tubes around the world, Amye plots taking over the world with Gluster. She has worked with many open source communities in the past, the most recent being Drupal.
