Open source doesn’t get very far without a community behind it. Many contributors to open source projects are members or leaders of other projects. While new projects and new communities are constantly being created, there are many lessons to be learned from older projects

In this Tag1 Team Talk, Michael Meyers (Managing Director of Tag1 Consulting) talks with 

Lucas Hedding (migrate, auto-update, new module reviews/mentorship of new contributors), Janez Urevc (media initiative owner, MongoDB), and Doug Green (Senior architect and technical lead at Tag1) to talk about what they’ve learned in their years working in open source, the mistakes they’ve made and the challenges they have faced.
