Many Open Source communities find themselves with an elegant solution and well-written code but struggle to attract and retain new users. In a crowded and ever-changing OSS landscape, effectively demonstrating your project's value to end-users and potential contributors is perhaps more important than the bits you package and ship. The Knative community found itself in this position in early 2021; through many months of exploratory interviews, tutorial development and user testing, the Knative community has managed to increase the satisfaction of their "Quickstart" experience by over 100% (as reported by end-users). By the end of this talk, you will learn best-practices for effectively attracting and retaining new users to your Open Source community as well as rallying your community around this shared objective.
