Facebook's open source portfolio represents a diverse set of projects, managed by hundreds of Facebook engineers, supporting hundreds of thousands in the community. This presents a unique set of challenges as Facebook looks to move fast and maintain a healthy portfolio. It's important to address these challenges since open source is a key part of Facebook's DNA. Through openness and collaboration, Facebook has learned that they can tackle today's most complex engineering challenges faster than if they did it alone.

She'll discuss how the open source team works alongside project maintainers to create tooling, processes, and best practices to support Facebook projects and community-building efforts.
