I am a Project Manager at Acquia, a commercial open source company working with Drupal. Most of my clients are large corporations or public-sector defense. Acquia hosts and supports Drupal sites, and also maintains a network of partners to develop and build large-scale websites.

I’m also active in the Drupal community and was one of the project managers for the redesign. I also assisted in the migration of all of the repositories on moving from CVS to Git.

Project management for open source communities is often taxing and difficult. Many community initiatives struggle because of the difficult environment of volunteerism and a lack of dedicated PM resources. This session will be a set of two case studies from PMs within the Drupal community.

* You Shall Not Pass: Managing Expectations and Boundaries with Clients

Open Source is great fun, even in the area of professional services. But sometimes, you want to be able to pay the bills with your awesomeness too. One of the areas of difficulty is setting boundaries with clients, even though you really just want to write amazing stuff.
