Lessons About Community From Science Fiction - Dawn Foster, Puppet Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If you think you saw this presentation at LinuxCon last year, you're wrong! To avoid boring people to death, I have a completely new set of slides and lessons for 2014. This talk focuses on community tips told through science fiction. While the topic is fun and a little silly, the lessons about communities are real and tangible.

Here are just a few of the things that I will talk about:
* Borg assimilation and bringing new community members into your collective for new ideas.
* Specialization is for insects. The best community members are the ones who can help in a wide variety of ways.
* Community members are valuable, don’t treat them like minions.
* Travel to strange new worlds and meet interesting people.
