Agile Project Management in Opensource: A Case Study of the GNOME JavaScript Bindings Project

Not scheduled
Workshop - In Person Project Organisation and Governance


Mantoh Nasah Kuma


Agile project management has been around since the early 2000s and has been adopted by organizations to improve product quality and develop more customer-centric applications. Opensource applications like GNOME projects can and are benefiting from this development life-cycle. In this workshop, I will discuss unique aspects of managing open source projects, including community-driven development, distributed collaboration, and volunteer contributors. I will also present a case study on GJS and its project management practices. Furthermore, I will analyze the challenges faced by the project, the solutions implemented and the outcomes achieved.
Finally, I will facilitate a group discussion on the lessons learned from the case study and how they can be applied to other projects within the GNOME ecosystem.
