Communities of Practice

Marc Burgauer (Lloyds Banking Group)
10:50–11:30 Tuesday, 18/10/2016
Location: Windsor Suite

In order to make an Open Source project successful, we often need the help of others. By sharing the problem in public, we find other people who have the same problem. They have the same need and are looking too for ideas how to satisfy that need. Creating a Community of Practice is often key to finding solutions that also benefit people who lack the skills to solve the problem on their own. This talk will introduce the audience to the concept of Communities of Practice and how we know that our community is moving forward.
