5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Any Community Manager, September 15, 2009
This review is from: The Art of Community: Building the New Age of Participation (Theory in Practice) (Paperback)
Communities are very complex ecosystems of human beings. Cultivating, growing, shaping and guiding the community to make them productive is definitely as much (or even more) art as science. In `The Art of Community' Bacon does an excellent job explaining in detail the considerations for managing and cultivating a healthy open source community. He provides a blueprint for developing and maintaining an open source community in a programmatic way and his attention to detail and understanding of the dynamics of communities make this book an invaluable resource for anyone looking to build and maintain a community. Drawing from his own extensive experience, Bacon does a great job of explaining how to help foster a community and provides great advice ranging from choosing infrastructure, measuring growth and even hiring a community manager. All and all a must-read for any community manager.
