Abigail Cabunoc Mayes: How to Bring Open Source to a Closed Community

One of the things we took away from this talk is that open source can be fun — and that’s a good thing.

The Video Screening Room

Abigail Cabunoc Mayes, who works for the Mozilla Foundation as the lead developer for open source engagement, recently gave a lively talk explaining open source inclusion practices. View this engaging video here.

You’ll learn lots of useful tips, as well as being introduced to a wide array of people working on open source projects. I’m following twenty new people on Twitter as a result of watching this talk — and my head is now spinning — in a very positive way. Love those folks in Detroit working on open source social justice projects.

Pass along word to others you know who would be interested in this.
