Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
Thoughts on Running an Open Source Project
March 01, 2012 @ 12:58:46

Lorna Mitchell has posted about some of her experience in being the lead on the open source Joind.in project, broken up into a few different topics including community, roadmaps and transparency.

I spoke in the unconference at PHPUK last week, on running an open source project. I thought I would collect together my thoughts into one place. [...] These are the things that, having been project lead on joind.in for a while, I think are important.

She talks about:

  • The importance of fostering a good community around the project
  • Providing good documentation (README in this case) for people new to the project
  • Having a clear vision of the future of the project (roadmap)
  • Dealing with the code contributed to the project - good and bad
  • Having transparency with the contributors and anyone wanting to find out more about the project

Want to get involved? Check out Joind.in on github for more details and the source for the site.
