Plénière n°1 / Keynote #1: The 750,000-Line Long Pull Request: Crafting a more Resilient Open Source Community


Since 2011, a community of developers and economists are developing OpenFisca, an open source framework in Python that turns law into software so it can be used by administrations, economists and activists.

As the community around OpenFisca grew, we needed to adapt to new expertises, new expectations, and new work habits. The arrival of a very large PR tested of the work we had put in to create a resilient community.

In this talk, I will describe how we worked to create a dynamic community that can deal with uncertainty (new contributors, very large PRs, …) and grow to reach new heights in the hope it can inspire others.
