Maintaining OpenStreetMap.org

Andy Allan

I volunteer as a maintainer for the "openstreetmap-website" project - the open-source code that powers the website, the API and the core database for OpenStreetMap. But what exactly does being a maintainer involve?

In this talk I'll be showing you behind the scenes. What do I work on in a typical week? How do I choose what to do? What makes a topic worth working on? How do I deal with the endless backlog of open issues and pull requests?

I'll also be delving into some recent changes that we've made, along with giving you some inspiration to get you involved in the translation, design, and development work.
