The most successful products always seem to drive towards what their industry is after. Elastic exemplifies this with the Elasticsearch, built, you know, for search, but being used as the core of many other successful products.
How can companies know what their audience cares about the most? Is that crystal-ball-like insight achievable without eldritch magicks?
Aaron Aldrich focuses on what successful open source projects leverage for their future to convince you that a strong community is the most valuable asset to your product. Along the way, he shares concrete examples of how Elastic has partnered with its community for greater success together and ideas for how you can foster community for your own products.
