Growing Open Source Communities

I wish I could give this talk 6 stars.

Lorna nails it once again. I'm going home and finding a project to contribute to. Thank you! Also, thank you for touching on imposter syndrome.

Lorna is a very engaging and practiced speaker. The message is delivered well and the audience is engaged and interested. Despite a late night and many tired eyes in the crowd, Lorna kept the talk lively, interesting, informative, encouraging and inspiring. Really well done.

As a Community Manager for an open source community (Magento), I found your talk really helpful. Your stage presence is fantastic, so kick that imposter syndrome to the curb! You did a great job of mixing your personal story with actionable advice to anyone else growing, participating, or thinking about participating in an open source community.

So much great information and insight about the type of mindset you need when building a community! I'm hoping I can continue to grow my groups, wherever my interests might take me. :)

I've decided I really like listening to Lorna talk. I think I'll make a point to listen anytime I can.

The talk itself was great, with lots of really meaningful and hard won information on open source communities. I hope it was recorded so others can hear it. It's helping to push me further towards wanting to start a local user group.

Lorna does a great job making her talks conversational. A great storyteller.

Giving a talk without slides is hard enough, and giving one this personal is even more challenging. Lorna did a fantastic job, and shared some deeply personal insights about her experiences that translate really well to community engagement and involvement. Excellent talk all around.

Very engaging speaker.

A great talk. Made me consider who I would consider to be a good person to start a local group where I live.
