* Why getting people talking will help your project

There are millions of open source projects and all of them need contributors. People are what make projects successful. So what is the thing that will get more people interested in your project? In technology companies they call it “evangelism”. Evangelism is the art of taking that love and passion for technology and using it to enthuse other people.
