Welcome to the FOSS Backstage Archive
Here you can browse through all sessions held at previous FOSS Backstage conferences and download the corresponding slides. Future sessions will be added to create a FOSS knowledge base.
FOSS Backstage provides a space to discuss a broad spectrum of issues related to community management, vendor neutrality and leading projects without discretionary power. Conference topics include open source project leadership best practices, community management, open source project metrics, open source strategy for enterprise, adopting open source collaboration in corporations, legal matters when dealing with open source and many more.
With a focus on decentralised decision making and open collaboration FOSS Backstage is a great place for: developers, architects, sysadmins, community leaders, students and anyone interested in building and managing communities within the open source space, to get together and exchange ideas.
The next edition of FOSS Backstage will take place online and in-person on March 17th & 18th, 2022.
The two day conference is dedicated to everything related to FOSS governance and open collaboration. The fourth edition of FOSS Backstage will consist of one fully virtual day followed by one in person day taking place here in Berlin. The in-person day in Berlin will be live streamed for those attending virtually, and virtual attendees will be able to ask speakers questions.
