FlashFlex.com:
A survival guide to building a successful open source project.
October 08, 2010 @ 11:04:43

On the FlashFlex.com site today there's a new post with recommendations for those wanting to start up an open source project (PHP-based or not) and to help it thrive.

In these modern times for the web, the appearance and use of open source software is becoming more and more commonplace. [...] To guide any would-be seekers of open coding success, Rob Bateman from Away3D takes you through some of the troubles to avoid, and offers advice on how to retain your sanity and enthusiasm over the first few months (and years).

He has a list of ten suggestions for things you can do for the project (and for yourself) to help get the ball rolling and keep it that way. The points include:

  • Decide how much time you are willing to spend on the library before you start writing.
  • Set up a website to increase user awareness
  • Do everything you can to assist newcomers to your library
  • Maintain neutrality in your community
  • Keep at it!

Take a look at the rest of the post for more suggestions and descriptions of each.
