Open-source means collaboration, not only within a single project but also across communities. In this talk, Ke Wang from Meta (Facebook) and Bin Fan from Alluxio will share their experience and lessons learned in their collaboration across two independent open-source communities, Presto and Alluxio. Starting from the end of 2019, core members from the Presto and Alluxio communities decided to develop a joint feature. They worked together on design discussion, prototyping, implementation, testing, and percentage rollout to production. In this cross-community collaboration, both sides have faced challenges, especially non-technical ones. By joining this session, you will learn how to tackle the non-technical challenges that are magnified by the inter-community nature of the project, including 1) building mutual confidence in leadership, 2) resolving complicated debugging issues due to regulatory frameworks, 3) working around cross-project release dependency, and 4) making good progress regardless of the COVID pandemic.
