Open Source Like a Boss by Charlie Robbins

This talk is mainly about how to work and do open source. Some key aspects Charlie mentioned:

  • You need to market your work because open source doesn’t market itself.
  • Pay attention to people around you.
  • Don’t take too much time to respond to an issue or PR. People feel ignored.
  • Communication is key.
  • Don’t be mean.
  • Only do open source if you really like it and have time to spend to care.
  • Your team should be like a distributed graph structure.

Or if you don't know what a response is, you can always write a webmention comment (you don't need to know what that is).
