The Story of Mixxx and How to Succeed in Open Source

Conference, 15.10 - 16.10

Mixxx is the World's leading open source DJ application. For the first time, the founder Tue Andersen talks about the story of Mixxx and how to build a successful open source project. During the talk we'll analyse an open source project from inside out to discover the major factors in building a successful project, from quality and release management to gaining traction, motivate people and maybe even earn money. We also take a look at social metrics and draw parallels to other open source project like Drupal and the startup world.
