I work as community manager for ownCloud and have been Free Software evangelist for over 10 years. I was previously at SUSE and volunteer in marketing in the KDE community. My favorite pastime is experimenting in the kitchen, trying to come up with something edible.

No video of the event yet, sorry!

Building a local or global community is a lot of work and there is much you have to keep in mind. This talk will go over a number of things that can help you: 10 steps to building your own community.

Building a community has two sides: a practical and a organizational. Practically, you have to get subjects for talks, articles, code, news or other things people can rally around. When building up a community, governance is another thing to think about. Should there be rules? What rules? Who should be in charge, or should nobody be in charge? The answers to these questions have far reaching consequences on the future of a project.

To learn how to get a community going and to keep it going, attend this talk!
