Talk given by Kenneth Hui (@hui_kenneth) and I (@aarondelp) at the CloudStack Collaboration Conference in Denver, 2014. We talk about how to contribute to an Open Source Community WITHOUT being a developer or a Community Leader. How can YOU as an individual participate and help share knowledge, influence direction, and give back. We talk about using tools such as Twitter, Google+, Blogs (Blogger & Wordpress), Podcasts, Video, and YouTube as well as how to show up in person and participate at a level that fits your comfort level, budget, and spare time.
