When you open source a project, you may have multiple objectives. Ultimately, driving adoption will help achieve those objectives. Without adoption, many other objectives, like getting community contributions, may not happen to the extent you strive for.

At Uber, we recognize the correlation between adoption and achieving our objectives, and have initiated a project which focuses on identifying and removing adoption blockers. We look at the resources we provide developers who want to try out a project.

Think of it as a developer goodie bag. We want to fill the bag with a lot of goodies, including documentation, getting started guides, tutorials, sample code, and other relevant resources. We want to include everything you need to have a great and worry-free first experience with the project.

In this presentation, Carsten Jacobsen, Open Source Developer Advocate at Uber, talks about how we have approached this challenge, and shares what we have learned so far from this initiative.
