Your Community


It's not yours!


You are just the leader


Most people will naturally follow you


Others will envy and hate you


Dos and Don'ts

1: Protect and Serve

You are here to serve your community

2: be Transparent by Default


Why keep stuff secret?


Before hiding, ask yourself:


Is the community better without it?


If there is no clear answer, publish it!

3: Do Not Waste Time


Before you do anything, ask yourself:


How is this benefiting my community?


If you can't really answer, don't do it!

4: Increase Participation


Do stuff


Do more stuff


Do stuff more often


Ask the community

5: ask for Volunteers


Just ask for help!


We are all volunteers here


Empower your collaborators:
Doers decide how to do things


Don't forget to thank them afterwards!

6. Value Ideas


When evaluating an idea,

disregard where it comes from


La verdad es la verdad, la diga Agamenón o su porquero.
Agamenón. – Conforme.
Su porquero. – No me convence.

"Juan de Mairena", Antonio Machado

7: Associate


With other regional Meetups


With other related Meetups


With CLSxMadrid


With sponsors

8: Take a Step Back


Let others take the lead


Grow the community


Groom new talent

The Outcome

The Outcome


Lots of work


Little recognition


You will always receive a lot

Eye to Eye


Not above


Not below


Treat all in the community as equals




I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.


Alexander the Great
