From Remote First Towards Async First - Isabel Drost-Fromm, Europace AG
Remote first - with current developments this is the new normal for many office workers globally. Often though this means replacing in person meetings with video calls - all to often leading to meeting fatigue. In this talk we will explore how open source projects have established different communication patterns. What is it that makes mailing lists so special for Apache Software Foundation projects and which properties would alternative technologies need to have to be a replacement? In which aspects does the use of issue trackers differ from your average agile project and what does that have to do with spring remote first collaboration? While likely basic to seasoned Open Source participants, these aspects are important to understand why they exist and how they are achieved to successfully communicate what makes both, InnerSource and Open Source projects work.

Enabling Dissent for Better Open Decision Making - Sim Zacks, Red Hat
The open decision making process is so successful by empowering everyone involved to participate, provide feedback and influence the decisions. This is critical for understanding issues, gaining additional perspectives and making sure that the decision makers see all sides of the issue. However, for this to be successful, you also need to hear dissenting viewpoints. Enabling dissent is a very challenging aspect as not everyone with an opinion wants to be part of a debate. An open discussion does not always ensure that all voices are heard, and does not necessarily give the appropriate weight to a differing opinion. Attendees will learn about: * using open decision making and why dissent is such an important aspect * some of the reasons that dissent is often not heard * how to encourage and enable participants to voice dissent * structuring the decision making process so that there is more opportunity for dissenting *
