This blog post is a follow-up to UDS-P, the Ubuntu Developer Summit and a refinement of the original posting here.
Where is your place in Ubuntu Community?
Are you a developer, a contributor, a member, a consumer, a Canonical employee? All of the above? None of the above?
Depending on where you are on this map, your perspective of Ubuntu is different. You see Ubuntu through a different lens.
From the revised map we can see that:
- There is a tiny team near in the "core" called "cct" or the "canonical community team" (Jono blogged about this today),
- The circles get progressively more orange as we near the core, implying that the community tuning is tighter (to use a musical analogy)
There is another key process we need to build/optimize:
- Developer Onboarding: How do we turn "consumers" into "developers"? Is the path depicted on the map the way it should work? Is there a better, easier, more effective way?
When we speak about community, lets use adjectives. Let's use more than one adjective if one isn't enough. Let's use precise language to help frame the problems we are trying to solve in the Precise cycle.
Please add your thoughts in the comments on how we can improve this map. And, if you know of similar work elsewhere, please let me know.
