Preparing Clients and Ourselves for Open Source Contributions

Presenter: acouch

Projects that use Drupal obviously use open source code. How can we best position ourselves to contribute useful features back during the life-cycle of our projects?

This talk explores strategies to help make sure that features developed during projects are committed back.

We will also look at how multiple projects can be used to create re-usable products. We will focus on DKAN, the Drupal Open Data Catalog, but look at other examples as well.

This talk will include capture management, project roles and tools, and reporting measures.

We will explore creating "open source personas" to help capture use cases and motivations of open source users and adopters.

We will also look at Product Management tools and strategies and how they can help open source projects achieve successful outcomes.
