Join the Apereo Foundation and VM (Vicky) Brasseur, award-winning free/open source advocate and corporate strategist, international keynote speaker, and writer, for a presentation and Q&A on Wednesday, April 10, at 2:00PM Eastern U.S. time.

With so many new open source projects arriving on the scene every year, it's easy for most people to lose sight of the fact that it's about more than code. A successful free and open source project and community needs a solid governance structure to ensure the safety and productivity of its members and users. Governance is a tricky thing, but thankfully we can do what all good FOSS Folks do: we can learn from and build upon the work of those who came before us.

In this talk I'll talk about some of the most commonly applied governance elements for FOSS projects, why you might want to use them for your FOSS project, show you many different examples of governance structures, and provide you with a resource for finding more examples that you can build upon for your project's needs.

By the end of this talk the audience will know how to approach governance in their FOSS project and where to find more help.

VM (Vicky) Brasseur is an award-winning free/open source advocate and corporate strategist, international keynote speaker, and writer. She’s the author of Forge Your Future with Open Source and Business Success with Open Source, both published by Pragmatic Bookshelf. Aside from articles in various publications, she also writes about FOSS, business, and their intersection on her blog, {anonymous => ‘hash’};.
