Open Source in Israel (10 minutes)

So, you have an open source project that's successful. Awesome!

You have millions of downloads, things are looking bright and it looks like everyone wants to get a piece of you. Just what you're you were hoping for.

Slowly, people start making demands about your project. You start feeling pressured. Working on the project isn't so fun anymore and you wish all the pressure would just stop. What happened?

In this talk I'll share my story and the story of other maintainers maintaining several open source libraries with 5M+ downloads a week.

I'll share my failures in keeping people I love engaged as well as my successes after learning what helps.
