Stepping into Open Source: One Year on iD

At this time last year Quincy Morgan was working at Esri while independently contributing code to iD, the opensource JavaScript editor for OpenStreetMap. A few months later he accepted a full-time position working on the project.

In this talk Quincy will present insights from his first year with iD: the process of transitioning from a volunteer to a paid maintainer, the unique challenges of opensource development, strategies for having an effective voice in the community, and the joy of working on your passion.
