Connecting Vision to Action in a Community Project - Matthew Miller, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Your mission may be "World Domination for Free Software", but your day-to-day activities are writing code, building websites, creating documentation, or talking and promoting. How can you know that one is really going to lead to the other? How can you show others, when you want to attract their contributions (whether time, money, or anything else)? How do you demonstrate that the resources you put in have a real effect?

This presentation will cover the basic concepts of a program logic model, and how using one can help your project answer these questions. Examples will be drawn from the Fedora Project, but will be of general interest to anyone thinking about planning and strategy. Because Fedora is community driven, this will be particularly relevant to others interested in applying these ideas to grassroots, democratic and meritocratic projects.

Fedora Project Leader, Red Hat
Matthew has been involved in Fedora since... a long time. He helped organize the first FUDCons at Boston University, worked on the original Fedora Legacy project, hacked on Anaconda for Boston University's remix, and some other stuff (including maintaining a few packages). Now he works for Red Hat and is basically paid to care about Fedora full time, as Fedora Project Leader. | | Twitter: @mattdm
