Ondřej Mirtes develops PHPStan, a popular open-source static analyser, as his full-time job. In this talk he'll share all the aspects that go into the project: development, prioritization of issues and ideas, community management, making money, and marketing. Most of the takeaways from the talk apply to any project, not just the open-source ones. It will give the attendees a few ideas how they can improve their daily work too.

Nice insights into how PHPStan is developed

Liked it, would habe liked to sea a bit more technical internals about phpstan.

Nice talk, too bad it ran a bit too long, so no time for questions

I can stop searching for a project to contribute to

Very good talk, packed with info, stories and good suggestion coming out from experience.

Only nitpick, the speaker talks fast and with a bit of an accent, so it's kinda hard to maintain enough concentration to understand everything.

Ondřej is always super! Thanks for these insights about PhpStan!

Nice talk

Good talk but as others pointed out it was a bit difficult to follow

Interesting but I’d like to know more on how the software actually works and why

Great work on phpstan but the presentation was a bit slow and not really engaging.
I appretiated the sharing of numbers regarding the project!

Good talk and thanks for sharing some "private" numbers.

Little bit scared me the idea that a tool so used and useful is practically maintained by only one person

Interesting content, relatable too. Great opening keynote.

As an OpenSource maintainer it was interesting to listen about the experience.

Nice, maybe speaker was a little hard to follow because of speed
