Everything begins with a great project, but to really succeed and grow it's not enough. This session will share the approach and some specific tactics that were used by the Eclipse Che project to grow to >4000 GitHub stars and >12M hours of usage in one year.
You'll leave the session with advice on
- Setting up your repo to foster and grow a community
- Define your project's value and get your voice heard in the market
- Encourage users to experiment with your project...and encourage users to contribute
...all with zero (or very small) marketing funds.
Warning: this session is not for people who hate large, popular, well-used projects...
