Contributing to Prometheus is no different than most other open source endeavors, which, like many projects, welcomes community contributions. Let’s gain better familiarity with the process by augmenting Prometheus’ AlertManager with a new “history” view.

An active and engaged community is a key marker of success for any open source project. Presented at CloudNativeCon + KubeCon EU 2017, this talk analyzes various open source communities and how they create and sustain communities to build and use better software. This session contrasts the communities of Openstack, Apache, Android, OpenDayLight, OpenNFV, Cloud Foundry, Mesos, etc. and highlights best practices of each in order to learn from and be inspired to build great CNCF communities. Open source communities use various means like meetups, hackathons, roadshows, day events, mini projects, college drives, etc. to attract and engage contributors and users. As the CNCF starts adding more projects in to its fold, the user base also needs to grow.
