Noirin Plunkett is a jack of all trades, and a master of several. A technical writer by day, her open source work epitomizes the saying “if you want something done, ask a busy person”.

Noirin got her open source start at Apache, helping out with the httpd documentation project. Within a year, she had been recruited to the conference planning team, which she now leads. She was involved in setting up the Community Development project at Apache, and acts as organization admin for Apache projects participating in Google Summer of Code. And, of course, she continues to contribute to ASF projects as diverse as Infrastructure and Incubator, and sits on the boards of both the Apache Software Foundation and the Open Cloud Initiative.

When she’s not online, Noirin’s natural habitat is the dance floor, although she’s also a keen harpist & singer, and a mean cook!

Successful Open Source and Free Software projects have an abundance of great contributors. A common challenge, however, are those tasks outside the expertise or interest of those contributors. Non-profit organizational homes provide an excellent way to solve that aspect of Open Source and Free Software. This session introduces many options that projects can choose from for a non-profit home. Read more.
