    Donna Benjamin

    Donna Benjamin is a passionate advocate of Free and Open Source Software. For the past two decades, Donna has been the glue for many successful organisations, teams, and individuals. Her volunteer work has been instrumental in helping open source organisations to upsize (and sometimes downsize) as they mature with their communities. Her work is valued by companies of all sizes (from the micro to enterprise). Donna facilitates success. She is a recipient of Linux Australia’s Rusty Wrench Award in recognition of her contributions, and currently works with Red Hat as an Engagement Lead, in the Open Innovation Labs, runs her own business, Creative Contingencies, and is currently the product owner for the Open Practice Library.


The Open Practice Library is both a repository for team practice, an open source project, and a community. Content is available under a creative commons license, and the site code is on github. This Library brings together two different worlds; that of product and agile software development principles and that of open source, distributed collaborative software creation. This session will briefly demonstrate HOW to contribute, and then invite attendees to file an issue, post a patch, share a practice, and join the community!
