Keynote: The Secrets of Building and Participating in Open Source Communities

Everyone knows that the most successful open source projects and vendors benefit from a thriving community. But how exactly is this done? In this session, Drupal project lead and Acquia co-founder and CTO Dries Buytaert will share his secrets for building and participating in a thriving open source community, including its commercial ecosystem. He'll describe the mindset, mechanisms, and practices that are essential for a thriving project and community. He'll also explore some of the failures that he's experienced directly since starting the Drupal project.
