What Happens After 7 Virtual Contributor Summits? - Greg Sutcliffe, Red Hat

Feedback form is now closed.
Carol has been organizing open-source related meetups & conferences for more than a decade. The past two years have been exceptionally trying. Any guesses as to why that is? :) In this session, Carol will share experiences from the 7 online Ansible Contributor Summits that she and the Ansible Community team have held in 2020-2022. While the virtual platform gave them more flexibility in many ways (such as having 3 events in a year instead of the usual 1), it definitely presented many new challenges as well. From pre-event marketing to technologies used during the summits, post-event surveys + feedback that feed into the next event, it's a continuous cycle of trials, errors, and improvements. There is also a major shift towards using open source tools and workflows for the summits, at the request of some community members as well as the desire within her team. Carol will share what fell short and what thrived, and how the changes impacted not just conference management for her team, but also how the Ansible contributors received these events. What do all these mean looking forward as we return to in-person and hybrid events? Can we apply these lessons to future events? Let's find out together as Carol is in the process of planning the first hybrid Contributor Summit in 3 years!
