Today’s world is fueled by open source software that allows developers to get work done faster and more effectively. One aspect of open source software that’s easily overlooked is the formation of communities, which ultimately shape and strengthen the project around which they started.

In this session, Dennis will discuss how open source software communities drive and support their projects, how user’s come to be a part of a community, and how you can immediately start making your favorite software better (and become famous too !).
