Michael Crump

Senior Developer Advocate


Your OSS project is looking better day by day. You've selected your preferred platform, frameworks, programming language and maybe a contributor or two. All is well except you aren't seeing the growth of your project as you'd like. Few stars and forks, and no open issues. What to do? This is where you can take advantage of live streaming communities to expand your OSS project's reach, code live as chatters ask questions and reuse the content for blog posts, YouTube and social media. By the end of this session, you'll have the tools and knowledge to successfully start live streaming.

You will learn:

  • How to build a community, expand your reach, and focus your OSS project to into something great and beautiful that everyone can enjoy from your live stream
  • Uncover what tools, hardware and software that is needed to start live streaming
  • Ways to build a better developer community in your OSS streaming spaces including moderation techniques and tips for interacting with your community
