‘Not enough time’ or ‘too much on my plate’ are just two of the excuses I hear when recruiting folks to get involved in the Continuous Delivery Foundation. I get that – really I do. I was born to volunteer. From rebuilding a historical ballpark, serving on the Eclipse Org and now playing a role in launching the CDF, I’ve figured out how to serve my community. In this session I will give the secrets to my success as a volunteer. First, we will look at motivation – why get involved. Second, how to find where you can best serve. Third, we will look at balancing regular work with the play of volunteering. We will discuss ways to organize both your work and volunteer service to optimize your time. You will learn how one role can enhance the experience of the other. In open source, there are more ways to participate than just being a committer. If you serve a different role in the software development process, I’m guessing your open source community needs that expertise desperately.
