Communication, Collaboration, & Community

Communication, Collaboration, & Community
A group of people eating pizza. 

Every step of the open source process is an opportunity to communicate and build community. That includes posting to discussions, your Pull Request messages, and the interactions you have with others as you collaborate, discuss changes, and celebrate when PRs are merged. And this goes both ways: there's a public record of contributors communicating with maintainers and maintainers communicating with contributors.

At OpenSauced, we're working on ways to create more paths of communication, and to celebrate your experience as a contributor. With our latest features, Teams and Profile Social Cards, we're making progress.
