Against a backdrop of ever increasing global challenge - from climate to COVID to armed conflict - the world of open source development and community stands at the same crossroad that has always been before us: How we will choose to build our future projects, advance the state of the art, and sustain efforts focused on critical technical infrastructure? In this talk, Leslie Hawthorn will explore the key opportunities before us and how we can best leverage the lessons of early successes - and failures - in the open source world to navigate our future.

As part of this discussion, she will explore promising trends on the global open source scene, including:
  • The must-be-seized potential of expanding open source development in an era when technical knowledge has become available to practitioners at an unforeseeably high velocity.
  • The rise and institutionalization of the Open Source Program Office as a vehicle for increasing collaboration and efficiency outside of the corporate sector;
  • The role of open source software as a vehicle for reskilling our workforce, creating economic mobility, and solving global problems at a local level.

Attendees of this talk will leave with:
  •  A solid understanding of the shifting landscape of the human element in our open source software development.
  • Best practices for businesses to best engage in this shifting landscape, particularly in their application to emerging arenas for open source, from industry verticals to academia.
  • How to engage the opportunity to rethink “the new normal” as a fertile ground for both innovation and sustainable growth and evolution of our communities. 

Additionally, you will be treated to a whirlwind tour of some of the very best moments to advance the community state of the art that your humble speaker has personally witnessed over the past 15+ years while working with hundreds of different communities across the globe.
