Over the past few years burnout has become an increasingly serious topic for companies and for Open-Source communities. High demands in our working environments and constant availability by email, phone and social media are only a few of the factors that can increase our stress level drastically. People working on Open-Source are usually highly skilled and passioned for what they are doing. Bringing all these facts together the risk of suffering a burnout can be extremely high. Therefor it is essential for all of us to get a better understanding for this topic: As a company, as a community and as a developer. Based on personal experience Jan Altenberg will give some insights about the phenomenon of burnout, how to spot symptoms early and how to deal with it as an affected person, as a co-worker and as a team leader. Furthermore, this presentation wants to raise awareness for this subject which still seems to be a “taboo topic” in many companies and communities.
