Description

Open source software is collaboratively developed by people distributed across the globe, some of whom work for competing companies, many of whom have never met in person. As many of us are now experiencing exclusively virtual work and collaboration for the first time, the best practices and development methodologies of open source software have much to offer us as we consider how to remain effective in our communication, collaboration, and co-creation. In this talk, Leslie Hawthorn will explore the ways in which members of open source software projects structure their social systems to ensure that the best ideas come to the fore, so that participants feel mastery of their domain and experience consistent gratitude for their contributions, and how these processes are ultimately the catalyst for creativity and innovation.
