In today’s episode we spend time with some folks behind a wildly successful open source project called dbatools.
We discuss the challenges of creating, maintaining, and communicating on a technical project that has thus far received nearly 14,000 commits!
- The what and why of dbatools
- Challenges of driving user adoption
- The difficulties of distributed collaboration
- Handling GitHub issues
- Constructing a project roadmap and vision
- Communicating with stakeholders
Chrissy & Rob Are Working On A Book!
Another great thing about creating open source projects? Sometimes, you can write books about it! Chrissy and Rob forgot to mention that they are are currently working on dbatools for SQL Server in a Month of Lunches.
The MEAP (preview book) should be released within the next few months and the book is due out in early 2020.
