Community at Scale

A Tactical Overview of How to Grow Your FOSS Project

When developers talk about scale, they’re thinking numbers of servers, nodes or queries per second. When community minded folk talk about scale, they’re focused on the human and legal infrastructure required to take a project from a small team of 3-4 people to a project serving the needs of tens of developers and hundreds of users. While our toolchains scale well in terms of development, an entirely different infrastructure is required for care and feeding additional participants in your project.
