Surprise, you're a manager!
Track: Social context & community
Type: BoF (45 minutes)
Time: Jul 26 (Fri), 13:30
Many of us started work in Free Software from a position of indifference, if not outright hostility, to the challenges and rewards of “management”, whatever that is. For better or worse this indifference doesn’t usually last long, as any project involving more than one person soon discovers that it’s not just about cranking out code, but about dealing with conflict, motivating volunteers, and balancing differing goals and priorities.
This session will be for sharing best practices, lessons learned, and asking questions. Whether you are the Debian project leader, or coordinating with one other developer on a project with 3 users, this BoF welcomes your ideas and your questions.
