Guilds! Develop tech projects playing role games

Elena Mateos, Adalab

Everyone is welcome to Open Source Weekends (OSW) — we even have a welcome guide. But in order to make it more interesting, we decided to change the methodology for projects development and adopt the “guild” concept. Let’s see what they are, how they work using a role play gaming experience (profiles, mission, collaboration, tools...).
