In this talk Marcin aims to share the experience gathered of running an open source project as the lead of Geb and committer to Ratpack. If you are a contributor, even an occasional one or if you are thinking about starting a new open source effort, you will find this talk insightful and interesting. Hopefully it will also bring forth ideas for improvements to any projects your are an active member of.
Marcin will talk about what's important, apart from code and features, but might not be obvious initially as well as how to get people using what you have created and how to deal with the community around it when it finally emerges.
You'll learn how he keeps himself motivated to work on open source projects. Finally he will mention a variety of free tools available to an open source project, which can be used to effectively run it and maintain high quality.
