Who should participate

  • Project coordinators who like to understand how to establish proper open source governance as part of the exploitation strategy of their projects.
  • Technical people who like to employ a platform for showcasing their results to make their work known, and are interested to learn about tools for software quality assurance.

Participants contribution

  • Please do not prepare slides! We like participants to engage in an open dialogue about the challenges, problem, and success stories on open source software development.
  • Please prepare a short statement about:
    • Your project in general, and the software you are developing under an open source license;
    • the group of users that you address with your software;
    • the measures that you employ in order to ensure that you deliver quality software;
    • the way you manage your community of contributors and users;
    • the expectations that you have on our workshop;
  • Remember: No slides!
  • Bring your software! If you have executables and an installation procedure ready we can immediately assist to bring your software into the AppHub Open Source Marketplace. We will organize a hands-on session on the AppHub platform and the Quality Assurance tool set of OW2.
