Different types of open source projects attract different types of open source communities. Successful communities can be tightly-knit or easy to join, highly technical or simple to contribute to, wildly popular or low key, or anywhere in between. What your community looks like will depend on several project attributes.

In this talk, Elizabeth K. Joseph will compare the architectures, user bases, and governance histories of various open source projects to understand how each factor impacts the type of community a project attracts and sustains. Elizabeth will discuss her extensive work on Debian, Ubuntu, and OpenStack, DC/OS and Apache Mesos. Other popular open source projects will also be included for comparison.
