    FOSS Backstage x newthinking: Discussing FOSS governance and open collaboration

    Free and open source projects (FOSS for short) today are ubiquitous in any software engineering project. In this talk we will take you on a whirl-wind tour on what it takes - other than coding skills - to build a successful open source project. For those interested in a deep-dive in that topic - please feel invited to join us at FOSS Backstage later this year in June.
