Open Source Networking reached critical mass in 2015, with an onslaught of new projects combining with many existing projects to create a vibrant ecosystem. Working upstream in many of these projects can require skills which are unique. Each project can do things a little differently. How can you help your people succeed as they navigate their way through the many different communities they encounter in Open Source networking?

In this talk, we will cover how to effectively work across many upstream Open Source networking projects. We'll compare how these projects take on new work, how they consume this new work, and ultimately how they fold it into their projects. We will take you on a light hearted ride through strategies which work and strategies which are guaranteed to fail. And we'll show you how to be effective in joining an Open Source networking community.
