Open Source Software, or how I learned to stop worrying and love dealing with grumpy people

Union St, 18-20 Union Street, S1 2JP
6.30 to 8.00pm

What’s it like to maintain an open source project? How could you get involved in one yourself? How do you know what you’re doing is working?

We’ll discuss my experience taking over administrate, how you can do something similar and discuss some strategies to make maintaining projects easier.
