Open Source Project Management

# Introduction to Free Tools for Open Source Projects

Welcome to this talk on project management tools for open source projects. In this video, we will explore various free tools that can be used to effectively manage our projects. We will cover not only project planning and management, but also code-level aspects such as licensing and creating project releases.

To give you a better understanding of these tools, we will start by discussing two example projects: “Blas Alive” and “Genesis Code.” These projects demonstrate the use of different tools for managing open source projects.

[Blas Alive](authority-link): Blas Alive is a library for creating websites, specifically blogs, in a dynamic manner using markup. It differs from static site generators like Pelican in that it generates HTML dynamically at runtime. We will delve deeper into this project and its use of tools in the examples.

[Genesis Code](authority-link): Genesis Code is a plugin or extension for Visual Studio Code (VS Code) that aids in developing games for a 16-bit console. It utilizes a software development kit (SDK) and facilitates tasks such as calling APIs and generating project files. We will explore this project in further detail to highlight the tools used.

Throughout the video, we will discuss the various tools employed in these projects. Here’s a brief overview of the key areas we will cover:

1. Managing the source code: We will explore popular version control systems like Git and Mercurial, as well as platforms like GitHub and GitLab where code can be hosted.

2. Licensing: Choosing the right license for an open source project can be daunting. We will discuss different licenses and resources like [](authority-link) that can help guide you in selecting the appropriate license for your project.

3. Project planning and documentation: Effective project planning is crucial for success. We will touch upon topics like defining project functionalities, breaking down tasks into manageable pieces, and the importance of documentation in facilitating collaboration and maintaining code quality.

4. Community contributions: Open source projects thrive on community contributions. We will explore platforms like GitHub and Bitbucket that enable contributors to submit pull requests, allowing their changes to be reviewed and integrated into the main codebase.

5. Agile project management: Agile methodologies can provide structure and efficiency for project management. We will discuss tools like Trello that facilitate agile project planning and task management.

Join us in this informative video, where we will delve into the world of free tools for open source project management. By the end, you will have a better understanding of the tools available and how to optimize their use for your own projects.
