You are the full package. You solve their problems, seamlessly integrate with their existing life, and provide the security they need. If only they could see it and decide to commit... We're talking about developers' git commits to open source projects, of course. Getting contributor buy-in for new open source projects is hard. This challenge is multiplied 1000x in highly regulated, 'buttoned up' industries such as finance. Projects in this space require specific knowledge, which most developers won't have. But more importantly — newer, neither widely adopted nor recognized projects coming from the money people are just not perceived as very exciting. Especially as they're unlikely to be something that developers can use on their fun hobby projects outside of work. So why would they be motivated to dig deeper into the ecosystem? Ex-GitHubber turned developer relations strategist, Elena will unveil the secrets of how developers evaluate an open source project, what tips them over the edge to join its community, what makes folks see your value beyond an open code repository, and what ultimately motivates them to contribute to your software.
