A Technical Guide to Compassion in Open Source

Open source communities offer rich opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and learning. However, contributing to these projects may also require dealing with contentious code reviews, frustrated users, and competing priorities.

In this session, you’ll learn ways to apply compassion to help navigate these challenges. You’ll leave with practical tools for reducing your stress levels, managing conflict more productively, and encouraging newcomers. Compassion isn’t just some soft and fuzzy concept, but rather an essential communication skill for creating communities where you and your collaborators can thrive.
