Suraj Kumar Mahto


Phosh is a modern GNOME-based graphical shell for mobile and smartphones. We wanted to leverage this ecosystem for our own suite of software. The best approach we thought of for understanding the project was to contribute upstream. This talk puts some emphasis on the amalgamation of enterprise and community.

In this talk, I will discuss the challenges and opportunities of contributing to Phosh as a startup. I will be covering topics such as:

  • The benefits of contributing to open-source software
  • The challenges of contributing to open-source as a startup
  • What are the best practices?
  • How to get started with Phosh development
  • How to find bugs and contribute fixes and contribute new features
  • How to work with the Phosh community

This will be a case study of our journey regarding the same.
