Sriram Ramkrishna

Sri Ramkrishna is a long time contributor to the GNOME Project specializing in Outreach. He currently is a director of the GNOME Foundation and extremely active on the engagement team. Sri spends inordinate amount of time talking, arguing, and recruiting in a number of public forums and social media.

Bad news travel fast, ugly news travel even faster. The world was not the same when GNOME released 2.0, and today's world you need to know how to engage with the community, apply damage control when needed and understand how information propagates through social media and to create an effective message.

This talk is about the key lessons we learned when releasing GNOME 3.0 and subsequent releases after and discuss possible solutions, or the measures we have used to help reduce friction with the community.
