Open source has become a cornerstone of many tech stacks. A good idea and few lines of code can be the start of the next big project, but many lose steam because they fail to foster a thriving community to shepherd the project in the years to come. Kay Williams explores key learnings for building strong open source communities based on Microsoft’s real-world experience with Kubernetes and VSCode.
Kay Williams is a principal program manager in the Azure Office of the CTO at Microsoft, where she works with teams across the company to connect, design, and deliver innovative solutions through open source communities. Previously, she spent many years leading product design in Office, MSN, and Windows Server before leaving to work on Linux and open source.
