Am a keen follower of Microsoft's SharePoint Blog and proud to provide this direct from the Microsoft Tech Community:



In this weekly discussion of latest news and topics around Microsoft 365, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft), Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore), share their perspectives on how open-source projects and community initiatives can be successful.


Why do some ideas get attention and others just languish?


This discussion focuses on 5 tips for driving successful open-source programs.


  1. Get the idea out of your own head
  2. Target the idea for the people who need it
  3. Rinse and repeat
  4. Building a team
  5. It’s not about you, it’s about them

Perhaps the ultimate success metric:  A self-sustaining program.  Successful programs include a strong community of contributors with varying talents, constant communications/reinforcement, well understood goals and objectives and a sincere Sharing is Caring mentality.
