Open source software has its well-known benefits, ranging from transparency, reliability, security, and its merit-based code; to factors such as cost-effectiveness and faster time to the market. Open source projects are in fact powered by communities, and without a well-established, fully supported, interactive community, they wither away. As an LF AI & Data Incubating Project, Flyte recognizes the importance of its contributors, and is constantly taking steps to build and grow its community. In this presentation, we will share with you Flyte’s evolving experience working with its open source community, tips of what worked and what didn’t, and how you can figure out what works best for your project. What You’ll Learn: - Major hurdles that Flyte crossed in order to bootstrap a community - Choices that fostered better discussions in the Flyte community - How blogs, community syncs and office hours indeed helped to build a community - How automation of the testing and maintenance process increased contributor confidence and community growth rate - Success stories and disappointments - Our journey with social media - Challenges the Flyte community continues to face and some of our future plans
