the I had a redundant the the the OK so the the well where my talk about making community and event loss and some of the slide said if you have not met me at my name
is Phil little wondered committee member of recent author co-authored joint author of 1 of the newer 1 2 guides and an oracle person so they're telling so my talk will
be going over some of the ways that people run into issues when they're building their community and some of the ways that we can design to make the groups of people groups of users that we have more efficient and overall allow them to see the things and they can take and the probably run into when they too the now you might say why community why do we need this will people been joining together for thousands of years to do things over similar to this and I feel like the more often times were able to gather together whether B in an online format such as I a here whatever Fourier community users or physical the like this secular new ideas and come out of it and how often have you been struggling with something and then you come up to a place like this and you find self that clicks finally consolidation that have been working on I think the 1 of the ways that we can figure out make our lives better and where we do as well as community the at now let's imagine a scenario let's say you're running a local meter per local with you and 3 friends could be to the before relevant is I wanna increase the group by urinary you're unsure how the Will the main thing I would say is stopped doing what you're doing whatever you're doing if it's not increasing in is probably not working well and your readout we're working on because if you continue doing the exact same things that you're going to do your community is not going to grow your community knockin expand the the however what we want to do we want to get the people in the community however you can just simply say I wanna grow my community people than trying to grow groups that they're interested in 4 years but before computers were around for a think people been trying to grow in various number of system since instances in communities such as this the however I think that often times when people actually want to grow the community it on think a proper practical ways to do this and to an outsider you're trying to grow me too I think it's important understand that growing your community equal selling your community selling your community mean the aftermarket your community menu as as a product because therefore you want and do you want to tell the people why what they're doing matters because they're not today's today's life today's world there's thousands of things that people can do with their time people rarely have free time to do what they want to do the you're the ability for someone to say wow I have free time a luxury in the world today I don't think many of us can say that we have that being said you need to be able to tell them why what they're gonna do matters and why was going to do is not only make the world better make them feel good at the same time end of that being said it's very important to you for free organization and a community URI to community organizations and as a living bribery breathing thing because doing people treat the group of community edges a collective group of users but in you treat them as 1 entire working vibrant product not product in the sense that we think of monetary product but product in the sense of something it's accomplishing something and then you might say OK well I wanna start up my community again and make my community functions now August out say you need to start a community online as you should start as simple as possible to the people when I wanna grow the community have these vibrant ideas they think I winding to go out and and new giant then I mean this giant scheme online and sure that's good but you gotta build your way up to those things you don't wanna come up and you don't want to tell the people well this is what we're gonna do and realize that you don't have the manpower the funds the ability to accomplish all of this the I mean I think that oftentimes too big can Eagle problematic sure these events are nice like this but we don't need every single community you're running 1 that's impractical of I mean have run a bond to meet ups before in my back yard at a barbecue the bit go to starbucks and sit down at people show up for a couple hours matches the same as meeting up with 30 or 40 people in a centralized location in many ways that being said if you are interested a bond to the several events that you can join up to start running you can start running things such as the 1 gyrus which a simple introductions Reunion France meter gather together talk about coughing complain about a bunch your talk about you things that you enjoy that it also coming up we have want to global jams westernized if you are adjusted found aryanism bug triaging and but documentation is but there is a problem for every piece of software fortunately the and I no 1 thing that I like about an event is of insert top marketing tool In order for your event to succeed you have to understand that you need to be able to the market you're events to be able to showcase your event to the people around you who might be interested in coming to it appears therefore the more quickly you get to event the more people you have as users and your developers later on so for instance the your your future attending your future event attendee could be 1 of your core contributors 2 years down the road which to make your life easier if you not consciously doing as much work the in the now I see an event is 1 of the easiest ways for a community but also can be a chance it can be to meet more people who might be similar to you like I said previously we want community as a way to be able to grow and will expand what we do and therefore the more people we can do that with the more chance we can build the product they were making or the product they're working on to be a greater level the more people you typically have involved in your project typically the better will be because it real it creates a more diversified User force and the ability to gather around anymore more people now say you need actually work on this and you realize the OK I'm going to be running my event and everyone in my group beautiful now many people get this but then they realize that they don't actually have the problem that we have the set up it and have the ability to run with they need to run so I think it's important I have discussion topics are already in mind when you the sit down keep inclusion in mind understand that you're going to have different people come to your group the they might not be added technical skills that you or they might have more technical skills in you but try and figure out a way to relate them the best you can at but it would the and for the 2nd note that only the data you're going to be running this meaning 1 thing you have to do this you have to prepare for things to go wrong obviously you may have kept the things in mind you may have found people who can show up to help you out but I understand the latter what you do with your community event something might not the right something might show up in you Prof forgot this didn't do this always plan for that that being said no matter what you can do something that'll happen and 1 of the things that I liked always understand will happen is it in any community whether this the online whether this be in person whether it be at the bottom of the sea there'll always be an asshole it's a sad fact of it's a sad fact I'm sure everybody here can come up with countless stories we could spend the next 5 hours talking about every person who's ever crossed problems in communities that were a part of the at but however the there's really nothing that we can do to prevent that I think however said that there is a book that I read a couple years ago that really address this
concern some that point out you guys which in cover difficult people renders maybe 2 years ago it addresses the set 7 problems I think developed the several types of people write down that title if you want to do whatever it is you your lives of now 1 are part is giving non-technical user club of some source however my asshole story if you will there was a man who ends in charge of this club book club and what was called a book liberal actually science fiction book club so so much fun I am in my spare time now the man of running the science fiction book club and for some reason no you got another job got other commitments and the science fiction book club started not function as well however that being said the he struggled to continue to function with the club running and so me in the other 5 members of the Book Club come up to me say sir we understand you're struggling with this let us help you to create a situation what can allow this code continue to run a lot commuter function and being the asshole that he is he turned to and says if no 1 can be in charge of this grid I can be in charge of this group no 1 can be in charge of this group and so we all left the group in the group died if and so there when nobody shows up the club that EU and the of the community then so are working on isn't it is again a function that way the of that being said what to do when you run your
event when nobody shows up no I would like to say is that they don't dislike event they just don't know about it for I used to run a bunch you meet up in San Diego where I'm from in California now for the 1st 3 or 4 times a random yet no 1 showed up so does that mean and as soon as nobody shows up you say I give up no you don't give up you find ways to continue to find things that you're doing wrong and you move on from there and in at that involves marking your event now when you a market here event you have to understand the type of people who come with the type of people you advertise to and if you wanna reach a wider audience have to learn how to advertise to different people no I say that 1 thing you have a event strongly in don't use use distance of metals don't issues your community event many software may suffer software many distros provide tools for you to use to work to advertise your event however you need to go on unconventional methods so there is there's 1 time for instance that I was running a me up in San Diego when the propagating about 10 people showing up every other week for the event however I decided myself wish I get more people as such advertising the event on Reddit Conati as we read it but if you are some you probably Eva saying that right now but so I have advertiser on red and then all the sudden at the Starbucks 2 weeks later 27 people show up the however whether the target audience I usually intending to show up to my back to munich there was 1 person ever relating back to but don't be an asshole came just for the me yet not a talk about a bond to but to warn all but 2 users how Google was trading jails to in prison people and you would not stop talking about 30 minutes of that was fun left the group of Trajan to i the now what's important with this is that in order for you to actually understand what's going on in a community yet to have to understand communication as itself if you think to me now you can communicate with small groups you can run an event because of this you actually have to understand how to think of communication itself as an object communication itself as something that is receiver-based now I think 1 thing we run into in communities is communication problems if that's not true I don't think you been involved in a community that being said what you need to have when you're insane is the understanding that when you say something the person you're talking to you might understand what you're saying out all completely whether that be cultural differences maybe there was interruption whatever it be make sure that you understand that the message you're trying to get across needs to be got across to them think of communication therefore present object so as I'm discussing this right now the object of my voice is being sent out to you therefore you interpret it and what you interpret is the communication I might say something I might advertise my be and I might advertise my software but unless the thing I'm advertising actually comes out and you understand what I'm trying to say therefore the message is not being getting across it that's right ordered actually understand community you have to understand several theories which relate to small groups 1 of them is Systems theory if you never understood systems theory I recommend looking up at very interesting avenue into research on the possible months now systems theory is a social science theory which says that people in groups operate as part of a machine now I think this works good with your entire to understand that every single member of the community is like a piece of the machine every single member represents a card representing here all working hard to make the machine run yet every single person putting input into the machine and together the people as a whole your community output something watch therefore it is the product that you're community producers and therefore the problem is union find out how the the machine works to join the community or find out how the machine works to allow others to get in your community because as a community you need to figure out that people who want to join your community have to join a part of your system at to 1 of the problems with this is that can create something called group think however and you never of group think I recommend strongly looking at groupthink essentially means that together in a group eventually even not everybody comes to the group has different ideas their minds will eventually start to output the same thought process whether that be that their influence by someone of a stronger opinion whether it be that their influence by someone who maybe of higher power than them they therefore walled the the term sewers hivemind if you've never heard of that Google any of these terms it's beautiful to another 1 that I like to look up and talk about is rules theory what's that in order you have something you can consider uh group or community members of the group have to have a common set of rules people often refer to these however as norms these rules dictate the way the group functions if you will and no In order for you to decay in or predicting the functions of the that implies that when people come in and you don't know the set of norms they not able a function in the group as well which is why it's important that as you get people new cup as newcomers coming into your community at you allow them to see the norms you allow them to see what goes on at how often have you guys been at a job before where someone new starts out n people may not like him people may not like her people may not enjoy the person that they are and so they make it harder for them to get into the community they make it harder for them to join up with the people this is our rules theory applies in our modern communities to where we need to have a set of norms to allow us to join in the the the now I think is important is that in order for you to be a part of this you have to love your software that you're producing if you download the software that you're producing you're not actually going to have a viable piece of product that you can actually put out if you actually feel enthusiastic when you get up in the morning the product that you're not gonna put out as is going to be as good i doesn't have any questions about any of this go for it yes so all of the what what In the world of so I the original the all all the things of beginning wiping feedback freedom is best my surveys that's a it with 30 feedback is on the whole this model is and I think I I I don't I personally would do a survey myself I think it's important you do a survey though to understand the questions you ask for the most important these is typically someone will design a survey and the last questions watch have a bias or they have a 0 they actually have 2 questions inside of that question as well as important able to when you're trying to get opinions from your community you know disaster Core
community ask everybody is you have to get a wide range of audience because of all you do is create a survey to say this set of this question and you feel like you enjoy contributing to the community and all you do is you ask the people who contribute to the community constantly those the people you're on a daily basis with during at the back is as my communities functioning my communities great everything I'm doing works the I recommend Qualtrics for surveys person on but the I think that cost money could be wrong In tha the also thing I would like to the only you have to be with you the from absolutely it's I'm happy is real-time event I think when it comes to dealing with difficult people like that what you need to do 1st i you need to sit them down you tell them what to do and not the sometimes they don't even know in however I'm not opposed to having someone not be allowed in the community and certainly only on the like whole we how you want to do so the and on and more what would the and by the end of the at war and say this is where we are and what the certainly I think there's people like that and sometimes just like everything else in life you have to evaluate the pros and cons like get to look yourself and say OK is it worth it for me to have this person in my organization if the work they're putting out is good enough the duke and deal with them being the absolute they for the work they're putting out that's a tough situation which only you can answer yourself the general in the form of what we end up to be a part of the of of full yes you you with all of the people of the of the of the of the year the in order to have community you have have culture unless you have a culture the communications not community but a set of individualized users doing similar things the and so 1 thing that people say an asshole yeah problematic person is and what they're doing doesn't by by the set of cold hat and I think sometimes there's nothing we can do to stop it I think for occurring wanted price but I think you can't let it go on because alternately they detract from other people doing in your community the and acting Dodgers suffer a fail alternately is that what positioning of skin interval the an hour and when it is the vision of the previous close was always also came from this is that even if the associated with is added to how many of those the knew was the way in and because the you get more people all of 5 people kind OK that 1 with the greatest masses the way and so on from what you know the people in the Congress and because of what other we some of the stuff you can tell people that you know this is this is this is not working out of by this not to find a way you can do better so this gap and I'm sorry why I think there's some open source communities that their culture is asshole all of it with all exactly and I personally am not part of them but the eastern yes no yes get the most you will also have to hold the the with that everything the lexical the black hole patterns laid out in the balloon will be have all of the time the the very different without having to the end of I have here of the of the of the all of the when there is this as the exclusive burst inclusive get in the way that my whole or we will find a lot of people for everyone from your Belva's I'm not moving at all so is is out of the way working in here like what what think you that the the model of open-source inclusion is a relatively new idea b is 5 6 years old now the I would roll it more widespread now I guess is going in yeah the variability that you look at it and it will it certainly have some political style of it's in the whole world view of the you get grants from the main areas of this is the gives people of this kind good part of the reason for this and possible level of so it's always the whole make is that use of the I would also like to do more than just the whole problem but also the idea of someone who is interested very excited about contributing and not following the rules you know what you often know what the in instead of trying to include all the things that were of so that people don't know what they're doing necessarily reality in the past you know they will be applied to people who are part of the center members membership recognize those skills useful at almost any of the project number of the ability to learn about it you have a really comes in and wants to contribute to the the science of what of flow all those things are useful to think of it as a form of what they go open to spend too much time with code in the but that is what is necessarily sometimes that involved including more people In the in those people have different manners telling needs in and he was going to review 1 of our nature that all those names people or In ends 90 % of open-source conferences are basically computer programming conferences in many ways yeah in the way of communicating with other schools and for this is book yes in general I would like to commit to to some of the theory of you when the wonderful of the model remember how the structure of our communication uh the principal ways as we know it so well with this idea that the problem or else in a way that the R is divide the problem the use that is going through this thing this is like the discovery of the that in the middle of communication because there the the method can you also has some techniques book not no in a way there were the the mission and you're out the message of the rest of the communication it's really this the
I think that an online community is that typically you have the issue 2 or sometimes people because they don't see the person face-to-face they can be rude to them because they don't actually see the person's emotions as well in which can be a problem in the house yeah the end of the of the and how you would find more people in the yes in all what there's several what I wanna get someone to attend the event what I like to do is I like to look and see what type of market I'm actually looking for because I feel like too often people will only market to people In the typical avenues that they're used to advertising murky and for the event so for instance you might wanna think the places that you might not actually never thought of before so that's measured advertising on ready for instance so like for some through like advertise on Google + relevance use that our present Facebook also I think so I started say for instance for some of my gestures events finding other computer users groups in the year in advertising at those because not everyone might be in a 1 to use the weatherman angle that's interesting i'll show up and so a good 3rd of the people who shocked about events are not affiliated abundant anyway anywhere there is 1 come and talk about things related open source what is perfectly fine with me and I think that diversifies people that can come as well but I like is it allows me feedback about of undue from people who were not die hard core contributors to our fanboys if you will however you you wanna like other places you can rocket as well little letters In definitely the we made up and what we have like what is at 50 dollars of thinkers and my like university of there OK mean yeah and it's bit the story yeah movement of literature and beat up if you can do that on the depends on the size of your group that you're it what it is yeah but if you wanna grow your 10 people that I mean definitely in also think about people who you the form the school might have use of the the it is it will be of all so you I think if there is no the talk want you and it all will obviously have to evaluate your target audience that you're trying to get to know however sometimes I feel like people set up an event that they like and they don't set up an event and the onset of a community as well that the people who wanna be a part of the community would like and so I think sometimes you have to looking at to say well why not attending and figure out what they want and feel they want you have to do that you might not necessarily even enjoy some the things that are going on but it's what the people community enjoys and sometimes you have to be a part of and I think sometimes it after the survey comes in that is asking people what's going on what can we do better in all of our a lot of the and if you think about it and you know it all if you know In other words and so has the do you we don't so you know the end of all of the studies also sometimes I was like to break up the the Danes into our the makers in the DOA's and so I love someone talk about say the lab someone do OK this is the program that I'm making and us and say well this is what I'm doing with the software and so the program I don't even know I could do that inference and sort the gives you wanna find little market every single category people that you can even if you're not a cat you yes no absolutely you I think the might have attended a lot before that half maybe 2 thirds of the log was just going out and hanging out and gathering attended lot the other day down and I was in Mexico and the 1st hours a Commissariat gi given conversation similar reminder right now but then after that we got for dinner for 2 and a half hours in this talk to become friends what should always good because that without the social aspect you can have the crew corporate ution that you're looking for a tree the FIL the connectedness but the last thing you will be all and the you know that time to time stamp of all of them were used in the have the you all are you trying to attract new developers new people in general both I think you're gonna have to find would advertise differently the both of them I think that you have to understand what they want is an individual oftentimes so I want to I have our 2 many meet ups to average people if you will people probably not attending foster right now as common of picture computer which gets the map to the event gives them and connected with people I what exactly is your software the year you say distribution OK so if you track I mean and you tried I mean is that the online community of part of or you know 1 yeah what are the major looking for non-technical people Facebook is not a bad option most not that people on Facebook and you can do Facebook groups I think and then every time anyone post in there they had notified and they can go on to that page if you're looking for a very technical people probably I is good Twitter is a good blend as well to mix non tackling technical people as well as in and over that you know 1 in that for for physical events I think it's and you have to adapt that for the cultural environment that you're in free person and each place however I mean after this meeting figures of out for sure in the the my cool that's it Our yeah shameless plug in 3 weeks the be to come out to California 1st India's southern California Linux Expo the 3 thousand person Linux event that in the 19 to the 22nd it's obviously not as good as fast and of course but the close 2nd and I encourage you to come out sometimes as well but that being said thanks for coming the
