Creating a successful open-source project involves far more than simply writing some code and putting it up on (GitHub|CodePlex|SourceForge|*) - learn how to make sure that others discover your open-source code and use it in their projects.

This talk will cover some of the basics of marketing an open-source project. I'll talk about what I mean by "marketing" as well as give plenty of practical how-to's about the difference between a great project that nobody uses, and a great project that takes off and forms a community around it. Everything from good documentation, to mailing lists, to optimizing for contributions, we'll go over what makes a successful open-source project.
