Creating and developing a new open source project is hard enough as is, but how exactly can you go about successfully sharing your project with the community once you’re ready to do so?

Collectively, this panel group has launched/worked on multiple open source projects such as Helm, Habitat, Cloud Native App Bundle (CNAB), Docker, Gloo, Athens, Service Catalog, & Service Mesh Interface (SMI). From our experiences, we've identified essential elements for any open source project launch, no matter how small/big your project is.

In this panel, we'll discuss what should be in an OSS project launch playbook:
• Infrastructure: tools needed to create a public space for your project
• Communications: techniques for setting a tone, creating a brand, & spreading the word
• Governance: what you need to create a protected but open space for your community
• Goal: purpose of open sourcing your project & the rules of engagement
• Community: what you need to plan to grow, cultivate, & engage members
