Xavier F. Gouchet

You’ve written some code, and you’d like to release it as Open Source. Congratulations!

Publishing an Open Source library goes beyond just releasing your code on Github. New users with different use cases means preparing for the unpredictable. How do you ensure your code is safe and efficient? Is your code easy to read? Do you have a plan for upgrades in the future?

This talk will look at best practices and showcase a checklist to follow when writing and publishing an Open Source Library, from the documentation to ensuring your library works as intended and doesn’t break applications using it.
