Creating/developing a new OSS project is hard as is, but how can you go about successfully sharing your project with the community once you’re ready?

Collectively, this panel has launched/worked on multiple open source projects such as Helm, OpenKruise, CNAB, Docker, Gloo & Service Mesh Interface. From their experience, they've identified elements essential to any open source project launch, no matter how small/big your project is.

In this panel, they'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, rules of engagement
• Community: what you need to plan to grow, cultivate & engage members
