Open Source communities are a complex and organic mix of people, culture, and software. Fortunately, Behavioral Economics can provide a scaffolding for building strong communities built upon how humans are irrational in predictable ways.

Bacon will delve into these predictable patterns of behavior defined by behavioral economics research and provide practical guidance for how to harness them to build communities both externally as well as internally within organizations. This guidance will not just focus on the community participant experience, but also on how community strategy is defined and executed within an organization. The outcome of this is a stronger community, more in line with how humans actually behave, and more rewarding for everyone involved.

Be sure to join us for an insightful, practical, and thought-provoking presentation.
