Hello everyone :-)
For my very first post here, I would like to discuss with you about the motivation behind open-source contributors. What can engage people contributing to an OSS (Open-Source Software) ?
Four of us in our final year of engineering school, trying to figure out : What are the motivational factors that can attract new contributors to an OSS project ?
We have prepared a very quick (2 min) poll. We already have defined KPIs for our study and we would like to confront them with this poll. We would like to sketch a subjective view from a developer side with the answers.
Once the poll analyzed, along with a selected number of large open-source projects, we will expose you a few guidelines on how to improve and enhance your OSS community ! :-)
Results in a future post, stay tuned !
