(IN-PERSON) Don't Forget to Like and Contribute: Streaming and Open Source Communities - Monica Ayhens-Madon, Canonical

While live coding streams are nothing new, during the lockdowns live streams (coding and otherwise) helped members of open source communities stay connected and provided much needed human interaction. They also became a way for the streamer - who could be programming, packaging, or answering support questions - to interact in a real-time, cozy manner with an increasingly regular audience in chat, who could offer suggestions, learn, and socialize. While in-person events are slowly returning, live streaming can and should be part of your community building practices. In this talk, drawing from her experience both as a community member and as a community professional, Monica will discuss not only the 'hows' of building your community, one stream at a time, but the 'whys.' From finding your idea leaders to learning how contributors work, live streams can illuminate some of the deeper processes at work in your communities, as well as create valuable resources for all community members, even those who learn and contribute in private.

So, thanks for reading and coming to my abstract, and don't forget to save this talk to your schedule!
