Open source projects are development projects just as much as any company's internal development projects. Successful projects like Linux, Apache, Subversion, Perl, Ruby on Rails and thousands more still have development methodologies, and have lessons for non-open development shops.
Andy Lester will be presenting what he sees as the lessons for managers from open source projects, and then leading a discussion with the group. If you lead a team or manage a department, this meeting is for you.
As with all Chicago Perl Mongers meetings, everyone is welcome, whether or not you consider yourself a member. We look forward to seeing you there!
