Community, Management, and Compliance
What makes an open source project flourish? We want to encourage more discourse about the non-coding aspects of successful open source projects.
The two day conference is dedicated to everything related to FOSS governance and open collaboration. The fifth edition of FOSS Backstage will take place as a hybrid conference both online and in Berlin at our venue TUECHTIG. Talk will be streamed live and virtual attendees will be able to ask speakers questions.
FOSS Backstage provides a space to discuss a broad spectrum of issues related to community management, vendor neutrality and leading projects without discretionary power. Conference topics will include open source project leadership best practices, community management, open source project metrics, open source strategy for enterprise, adopting open source collaboration in corporations, legal matters when dealing with open source and many more.
With a focus on decentralised decision making and open collaboration FOSS Backstage will be a great place for: developers, architects, sysadmins, community leaders, students and anyone interested in building and managing communities within the open source space, to get together and exchange ideas.
