Stakeholders are the people that care about the project you are working on - the ones that make sure you have what you need to get it done. Traditionally, in open source, the only stakeholders were the projects’ contributors.

As more and more people get paid to work on open source software, the stakeholders are not always obvious. For example, a VP at a company might fund 5 developers to work on your project. What information do they need to be able to continue to justify that? Do you know how to inform them of your community’s health and any needs?

Whether it’s a project you lead or a project you are invested in, it’s important to know your stakeholders and communicate regularly with them. Come learn how to identify the key stakeholders of projects as well as what information you might want to review with them. You’ll leave with a proven list of things to include in your next review.
