Developer of the Minute

  1. 1. Developer of the Minute Made by hand for Drupal.org by FreeScholar 9/30/15 Visualizing and celebrating diversity while growing a community organically
  2. 2. How do we allHow do we all connect?connect? Non-coders keep a community running, growing and evolving. Coders build software for the community. What do coders and non-coders have in common?
  3. 3. kattekrab: We need to recognize non-coders as first class citizens in the Drupal community. Dries: We must recognize all contributors in Drupal, not only the coders, we need to figure out how we can recognize them and this is something the Drupal Association knows and is working on now. It is not a job for Dries to figure out everything! We must all come up with ideas...
  4. 4. How does a community recognize and reward each of their members regardless of what it is they contribute? What do non-coders actually do, what should they called? Why should I know them? We are also Developers – Community Developers. We are ALL Community Developers. Without the whole community, code is just code. It will miss opportunities. We are also, Community Organizers... and we need to know about each other to combine our efforts to reach our potential.
  5. 5. One must relate to SOMEONE in a Community in order to IDENTIFY and feel CONNECTED, and stay INVOLVED. Seeking someone like you, doing something like you do, or building something like you are building, is a natural thing.
  6. 6. The Fears Where do I fit into the picture? I do not see anyone like me in there? What do these people do and what do I have in common with any of them?
  7. 7. Do you see yourself here?
  8. 8. Do you see yourself here?
  9. 9. Do you see yourself here?
  10. 10. Or, do you see yourself over here? Hmmm....
  11. 11. A Question What would you do if you saw a picture of your friend or colleague on a website you visit? Not on Facebook or Twitter, but featured on a tech website, a site you go to for information?
  12. 12. Imagine
  13. 13. Engagement The Question, once again: What would you do if you saw a picture of a friend or colleague on a tech website that you visit? ✔ The Plan: Invite people to put their face on your website in a way that allows people to see what they have in common, in 60 seconds. You are seeking information, you connect with topics and ideas, then you end up in a tree with other people... Click?
  14. 14. Webmention is a simple way to notify any URL when you link to it on your site. From the receiver's perspective, it is a way to request notifications when other sites link to it. Webmention is a modern update to Pingback, using only HTTP and x-www-urlencoded content rather than XMLRPC requests. Webmention supersedes Pingback. Webmention uses IndieWebCamp http://webmention.org http://indiewebcamp.com/webmention https://www.drupal.org/node/1987964 Oooh, Webmention... Indy WebCamp... There is almost a module for that!
  15. 15. Chathouse.com 1997 archive.org screenshot A campaign for members to send us their photo, was posted in a newsletter... The photo was then posted in a prominent place on the front page, allowing people to to click on the image to see a short biography of the person. A member based topical chat site
  16. 16. Outcomes... What else came from this idea and social model? – A large spike in traffic and more postings were read – Member generated message boards and forums based on chathouse.com themes http://z13.invisionfree.com/The_New_Asylum/index.php?showtopic=10 – More links back to the site – Within 2 months, 9,000 registrants per day – The start of a paid membership base What Next? Something else started growing... it was a tree.
  17. 17. The Family Tree What is the Family Tree? – A way for people to show they have... ● Skills ● Connections ● Mentors ● Progress ● Projects ● Identity A networked community where people are contributing to a larger community effort, encourages people to share ideas and knowledge freely. Connections grow when people see people doing things and there is a place for them to join in the doing.
  18. 18. Family Tree Page 1997 Each image below was linked to a short biography of the community member. Creating a venue and allowing people to meet on their own terms is better than introducing them. Discovery is a big part of welcoming diversity at our own pace.
  19. 19. Outcomes... What else came from this idea and social model? – A physical community with longterm connections – People building a network – Many members hosting events around the globe – A magazine with over 20 writers – People contributing posts to the site – Wait, did you say a magazine?

  21. 21. Imagine
  22. 22. The 'Developer of the Minute' image links to a 30 – 60 second video. The subject answers 2 questions. 1. How has Drupal changed your life? 2. How has Drupal enabled you to change the lives of others?
  23. 23. On other sites, where mostly non-technical people gather, the 'Developer of the Minute' image is displayed and is linked to the same 30 – 60 second video The campaign will evolve to include videos from non-technical people describing their passions so that Community Developers may get a view into what the community needs.
  24. 24. Two KEY QUESTIONS asked of community members - archive.org screenshot 1. How has Drupal changed your life? 2. How has Drupal enabled you to change the lives of others? The Campaign – Basics: A. Coders will first meet each other and learn about their similar interests, passions and projects. B. Non-coders will be introduced to coders that have the skills, the passion and desire to build things.
  25. 25. We already have diversity, let's show it! Members will send in their own videos and add value to the campaign as it grows. This campaign will easily show the diversity of community members around the world, and the people that are deeply involved in making it all happen.
  26. 26. See yourself everywhere you want to be. Community Developers
  27. 27. A Conclusion Working together, local community strategists and free software developers can build things that are bigger than themselves. Ideas become realities that improve lives. Drupal developers and free software users, working together, can develop new tools for enriching the lives of all. ...But first they must be introduced to each other and realize their common goals. So, what else came from this idea to put a face on a website?
  28. 28. Intending to cross-pollinate the Drupal community with other communities that can or do use Drupal, we are seeking to highlight diversity by implementing this campaign on several sites that already have robust communities seeking to network and make long lasting connections. It would be awesome if Drupal.org was the first site to host this campaign. FSF.org Drupal.org SlashDot ubuntuforums.org USFWC – usworker.coop Wordpress.org Stack Overflow Code Academy Tech Crunch ETC... It grows and expands.
