Building and Maintaining a Healthy Community

Open Source organizations and projects are driven by the strength of its community. We have often seen but how big communities fall because of wrong ways of handling it or mismanagements. My talk will be around the lines of how a community leader or manager can take a few extra responsibilities to keep a community healthy.

Being in the Open Source world for the last 4 years, I have got opportunity of working with several different communities.

Communities are tough to build, true, but what we often forget is the fact that once built, these communities are even tougher to be maintained.

There are some very simple rules around maintaining the health of these communities. Through my talk, I would like to point out a few of those simple tricks to building and maintaining a healthy community.
