What makes an open source project flourish? We want to encourage more discourse about the non-coding aspects of successful open source projects.
FOSS Backstage provides a space to discuss a broad spectrum of issues related to community management, vendor neutrality and leading projects without discretionary power. Conference topics will include open source project leadership best practices, community management, open source project metrics, open source strategy for enterprise, adopting open source collaboration in corporations, legal matters when dealing with open source and many more.
With a focus on decentralised decision making and open collaboration FOSS Backstage will be a great place for: developers, architects, sysadmins, community leaders, students and anyone interested in building and managing communities within the open source space, to get together and exchange ideas.
The fourth edition of FOSS Backstage took place as a hybrid event with on day fully online, and one day onsite in Berlin
FOSS Backstage will return in spring of 2023.
