In this engaging keynote, Matt will talk about how he got to his current position, how you can get here (if you’re not already), and how we all can work together in open source to bring in more community members, and  to give them this opportunity.

Matt will detail who can help encourage new community members, and what specific tasks can be done to set them up for success in the Drupal universe.
