Abigail Cabunoc Mayes, Mozilla Foundation
Abby has been testing out ways to bring more open source to the different communities the Mozilla Foundation works with: science, internet of things, journalism, and web literacy. Taking lessons from movement building, she found some open source champions, invested in them through workshops, summits, and ongoing one on one mentorship as they learn to work openly. In this talk, she’ll share some of the lessons learned teaching open source and fueling the open web movement.
Share strategies and experiences growing open source communities and practices.
Anyone interested in contributing to or building open source.
