In open source, code is the currency of choice. However, running an open source project includes non-code tasks that can make a difference in your project becoming high-velocity or one that gets forgotten.

In this presentation, Kim and Jonas will share their experience and best practices on PR and proposal management, building consensus, rallying a community, and marketing that makes a difference. It’s all about sustainability of an open source project and the things you can do, other than code, to help its future growth.

There will also be time for audience engagement in an interactive conversation to answer your questions.
