The lack of community engagement is one of the most significant barriers to the survival of open source projects. In Alluxio (alluxio.io) open source community, we experimented with different approaches to nurture the community. In this talk, we will share the story and our findings of engaging the Alluxio community over the past six years. This talk provides:
  1. a deep dive into the methodology and framework used in building the Alluxio Open Source community; 
  2. experiences on how to integrate open source in the company’s GTM strategy;
  3. a step by step process in building a flywheel with super contributors to help the community generates growth on its own while resulting in ROIs that benefit all departments in the company as a whole; 
Furthermore, rather than simply point-scoring and giving badges, introducing gamification turns very effective to understanding and influencing human behaviors. There is a delicate balance of triggers, ability, and motivation to find the “happy path” for contributors – the perfect amount of challenge and competition to keep them interested. We will also discuss other pillars of community building and how to bring together the different pillars to build an everlasting and vibrant community. With innovative techniques, open source projects can create deeper engagements and turn ordinary community members into super-contributors.
