Working with the OSGeo Community

334 views

Published on

Welcome to the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, this presentation is on how we actually get work done as volunteers.

This presentation covers the 'lay of the land' introducing our committees, local chapters and projects and describes how each one is organized. More importantly we will look at how each group makes decisions, from the scruffy friendly system administration team who handle your infrastructure requests, to the OSGeo board making final calls on budgets and funding.

We will introduce your guides (by name with pictures) the foundation officers and committee chairs who facilitate all that we do.

OSGeo is best done close to home - setting up a local chapter allows regions (or languages) to support each other grow. We will look at how a local chapter is set up, and several successful local chapters.

Please keep in mind that we are all in this together, attend this talk to see how you can get started (or be more effective) in the OSGeo community.

Annual General Meeting Why didn’t you go! • It had “meeting” in the title • It was at 8 am this morning • Could not walk, too much dancing at gala Why you should go next year! • Hear from each team in their own words! • Inspirational • See the successes, face the challenges • The local chapters do so much 31 August 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation 3 Winning: Creative Commons means I can ”remix” the slides from the AGM!

  5. 5. Empower everyone with open source geospatial • OSGeo is a not-for-profit software foundation • Provides projects financial, organizational and legal support • Outreach and advocacy • Promoting global adoption of open source geospatial technology • Partnerships on open approach to standards, data and education. • OSGeo is volunteer driven • Passionate membership of individuals from around the world.

  6. 6. Open Geospatial • Working with our partners: • Open Source: a collaborative approach to software development. • Open Data: freely available information to use as you wish • Open Standards: avoid lock-in with interoperable software • Open Education: Removing the barriers to learning and teaching • Open Science: Share data and software for responsible research August 31, 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation 6

  10. 10. Take a moment … 10 ● Everyone you meet will have ○ a different motivation for participation ○ expertise, enthusiasm and experience they are willing to share ○ limited time they are devoting to this activity ● How we get along ○ respect each other ○ enable each other ○ encourage each other ● Keep in mind ○ Open source community is not a vendor, does not owe support ○ Social contract, support community with participation ○ Aapproach support as a member of the community (See https://www.ianturton.com/talks/foss4g.html) August 31, 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation
  11. 11. Not-for-profit August 31, 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation 11 • The organization is register in the US as a not-for-profit • Same “category” used for neighborhood associations • Work done by members can benefit the members • So not a charity • We do sponsorship, not donations • We still have a strong “public service” focus • It is just we are part of the neighborhood we are serving! • My take? • “Volunteer driven”  ”Community Based”
  12. 12. Careful with Money August 31, 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation 12 • We are careful about spending money • We started out with Autodesk as a key sponsor in 2006, providing stable funding for one employee • Restructured to be low-capital organization in 2013 (only supporting activates that could support themselves) • Gradually relaxing, setting an annual budget for committees and initiatives • We are still working on this • Sensitive that dollars go a lot further in different regions • Our members time is the limiting factor • fund activities that enable our members to be effective

  20. 20. About those Elections August 31, 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation 20 • Charter Member Elections • Criteria outlined for nomination process • Charter members providing nominations, review and vote on candidates • Charter member election experiments • Remember to ask the person first! • Key community members could go unrecognized … for years! • We found everyone nominated gets accepted • Initially diversity was … focused on Java vs C tribe! • Charter members can only nominate people we know, hindering growth around the world
  21. 21. About those Elections August 31, 2018 Open Source Geospatial Foundation 21 • Board member elections • Half the board is up for elections each year • Nomination process, by electronic voting • Board member elections experiments • Gradually the community has requested candidates answer some questions or provide a “manifesto” on what they would like to accomplish • Experimented with a Candidates debate • We have some standing differences based on different priorities, which are hard to debate kindly • For a global community, we struggle with regional diversity
