Re: [opensuse-project] Don't search developers. Develop them. Events, events everywhere

Hello my friends,

Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the conference due to family
health problems.

I saw the project meeting and I totally agree with Henne. Actually I
was preparing a post about part of what he said.
Here it is:
https://lizards.opensuse.org/2015/05/06/developing-developers/

It doesn't matter if the product is the best (SLEbased, SLEless, Tumbleweed).
If there are no end users to use and promote it (because usually
developers don't), then it's useless to have it.

Find out WHY you do what you do and just go out and engage people (as
I mention, the term marketing leeds to profits-money).
Go to events, bring more people (prefer end users) to community and
just help them engage-grow.

Help end users to find themselfs in the community. If they like it,
they'll become developers. If they're not interested in developing,
they'll help make our project fantabulous.

Don't forget to have fun.
/S

it's exactly my thought, but I'm not sure it's that of the board, at least not what was said in the conference I attended, that openSUSE should be more developers oriented.

the reasoning is that few users become participant. But IMHO, developers can't be found but out of other distros and It's not a good practice.

New people can't be found but from users, and among many users, having a small percentage may be a great total
