In this weekly discussion of latest news and topics around Microsoft 365, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft), Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore), share their perspectives on how open-source projects and community initiatives can be successful.
Why do some ideas get attention and others just languish?
This discussion focuses on 5 tips for driving successful open-source programs.
- Get the idea out of your own head
- Target the idea for the people who need it
- Rinse and repeat
- Building a team
- It's not about you, it's about them
Perhaps the ultimate success metric: A self-sustaining program. Successful programs include a strong community of contributors with varying talents, constant communications/reinforcement, well understood goals and objectives and a sincere Sharing is Caring mentality.
Thank you for your participation and contributions in your community. Also, in this episode, there are 15 newly released, well documented and evolutionary articles.
As always, if you need help on an issue, want to share a discovery, or just want to say: “Job well done”, please reach out to Vesa, to Waldek or to your PnP Community.
