Community Building on an Open Source Platform - Rikki Endsley, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Like local communities, online communities need places to meet. With the help of the Drupal open source CMS, Opensource.com has become that meeting place for a diverse range of online open source communities. The steadily growing six-year-old site already attracts almost a million page views per month. In this talk, attendees will find out how Opensource.com leverages the power of Drupal to grow its diverse international community of moderators, writers, and readers.

Attendees will learn how Opensource.com uses points and badges to recognize contributions and reward participation; organizes and streamlines content and workflow; uses privileges and roles to give community members content control; gathers user profile data behind the scenes for future rewards and contests (e.g., t-shirt sizes and mailing addresses); and maximizes search and syndication to build community.
