Experts discuss the challenges and opportunities for expanding open and community-supported infrastructure.

About this event

We frequently hear that infrastructure is costly to build and maintain. Systems require investment and ongoing maintenance for the community to really benefit from and trust them. To ensure long-term success, community groups need to consider which of the spectrum of models currently in use will best sustain key information infrastructure. What’s working, and what’s been abandoned — and why? What are the best practices for working across organizational boundaries? How can community leaders encourage the commitment needed to ensure sustainability as well as development? This virtual conference will bring together a group of experts to address these and other questions about the expansion of open source and community-supported infrastructure.
