Using Cloud Based VMs to Build Community - Ross Gardler, Apache Software Foundation

The first step in building a viable open source community around your first usable codebase is to attract users who may later become contributors. This session looks at best practices for using Virtual Machines to support users and potential contributors.

In this interactive session we'll discuss what users want from trial environments. We will also discuss what we need to provide in order to help a user become a contributor. Next, we'll explore ways of providing those environments as part of the normal release process of a typical project. Finally we'll take a quick look at how this kind of activity not only benefits the project community but can also drive business to companies providing services based on the open source project.
