Collaborative development is at the core of successful open source projects. Yet to be successful in today's competitive open source world, it is increasingly important to master many different disciplines and to develop an edge.
In this talk we will cover a wide range of topics relevant to developers and members of open source communities who want to increase participation in their projects. Topics range from growing your developer base (e.g. by participation in GSoC, OPW and similar programs), rewarding participation, projecting momentum in the media and press, coercing large companies into contributing more and in different ways to your project, running community initiatives successfully and measuring success.
We will use real-life examples and where appropriate share tools and mental models that help you make the right decisions for your project.
