The Connected Community Model: Research Findings and Lessons Learned

The Connected Community Model: Research Findings and Lessons Learned

Conference: OSCON 2019
Speakers: Diane Mueller and Daniel Izquierdo

The interdependency of open source projects such as OpenShift (OKD) with upstream projects (Kubernetes, OpenStack), downstream services, and related initiatives (operator framework) has changed nature of open source community development. As communities converge and release schedules and priorities collide, project leaders need to adjust OS models, rethink interactions with multiple release cycles, and juggle the divergent agendas.

Diane Mueller and Daniel Izquierdo examine joint research findings from Bitergia and share lessons learned at Red Hat on the interrelatedness of Kubernetes, OpenShift and OKD, OpenStack, and CNCF communities developing around distributions. They also detail new approaches to open source community development as well as new tools and practices.
