Open source communities are an important part of the software development landscape, allowing individuals from around the world to collaborate and contribute to projects. However, building and maintaining a thriving open-source community can be challenging. This presentation will explore the best practices for attracting and retaining contributors to your open-source project. We will begin by discussing the importance of creating a welcoming environment for contributors, including clear documentation and communication channels. We will also cover strategies for incentivizing participation, such as mentorship opportunities. Additionally, we will explore the role of diversity and inclusion in open-source communities, and how to create a culture that values and celebrates differences. We will provide real-world examples of successful open-source communities. By the end of this presentation, attendees will have a clear understanding of the best practices for building and maintaining a thriving open-source community. They will be equipped with practical tips and strategies that they can implement in their own projects to attract and retain contributors.

Speaker Andrej Chmelo is a software engineer at Broadcom with a passion for advancing the field of technology. With a focus on innovation and collaboration, he is an integral and active member of the Zowe community, contributing his expertise to drive the project.
