Accepted Talks:

Community building in Free Software and focusing on DEI

For open-source organizations, the community is a powerful tool. It helps to reach out to developers and other stakeholders vital for the project’s growth. The community enables public awareness, and it’s the spirit of the community that makes such projects successful and always updated. In this presentation, I will emphasize the best ways and tools you can use to adopt certain criteria and figure out the most efficient form to engage the stakeholders to drive the daily development and recurrent improvements of an open-source project. Also, in this talk, I will be sharing strategies open-source projects can adopt to recruit diverse talent and bring about project visibility in under-represented demographics.

GNOME community and ways to engage.

Contributing to open-source projects can be a rewarding way to learn, teach, share, and build experience. There are plenty of reasons why you should contribute to an open-source project, such as: gaining new knowledge, making new friends from all around the world and sharing with others what you have learned. In my presentation, I will share with you my experience in the GNOME community as the program manager.

Main points of the presentations would be:

  • What’s our main focus in GNOME’s contribution areas
  • How does the GNOME community work inside.
  • What are the areas of contribution etc,
