|Publico Alvo||Experts on marketing and open source communities have said that \\\'Marketing is being replaced by community development\\\'. The objective of this panel is to discuss how to build and nurture open source communities. Several companies and communities are represented which have very different points of view. New graduates who are entering the job market as well as established workers will find this topic of interest. Managers of open source projects will find new ideas that will help them create, build and grow the community surrounding their projects.|
FLOSS has changed the way products are developed and the way community members interact. In many ways, the community surrounding a software is more important than the software itself. This panel introduces four women who built community. What is their experience? How have they succeeded?
Teresa Giacomini is a Senior Program Manager at Sun Microsystems. She joined the OpenSolaris team four years ago to build a relationship with students and professors around the globe. Over time, this role expanded to include other types of community outreach such as conferences, trade-shows, and user groups. Through her efforts the number of user groups for OpenSolaris have nearly doubled in the last several months. Prior to OpenSolaris, she held a number of program management and administrative roles at Sun, Oracle, and several other software companies. In her spare time (what's that?) she spends too much time running fund raising auctions for her children's schools.Alix Franquet
