Creating online community the open source way

Target Skill Level: 
Everyone

Many people are familiar with how the open source development model became successful by using principles of sharing, collaboration, rapid prototyping, and many others. This presentation explores the ways the opensource.com project team moved from an idea, to a deployed Drupal website with a growing community. I'll cover the different elements needed to achieve this: content management system, content, and community participation. We highlight some of the components of Drupal that we are using on the site, but the main focus is around online community building and fostering participation via social media and traditional methods.
