An open source project is more than just a code repository. If you want to be more than a single-developer project in an obscure corner of the world, you need to build community around the code. But building communities of users, adopters, and developers requires planning and work. In this session, we’ll talk about the sorts of things that you need to think about: license selection, finding and connecting with your community, courting contributors and contributions, trademarks, intellectual property management, contributor agreements, whether or not you should consider moving the project to a foundation, and more.
