    Solutions Engineer

    GitHub

    About

    As far back as he can remember, Alain — also known as @helaili on GitHub.com — has always been a tech guy. After 15+ years in the software industry (from middleware to database and APM) he joined GitHub in 2015 as a Solutions Engineer. He now commits to strengthen relationships between developers and operations, and helps companies understand how to build better software, faster. A tireless Open Source advocate, Alain has a very interesting take on the way businesses (including GitHub) use GitHub to collaborate on code and create awesomeness everyday.

Guilds! Develop tech projects playing role games

Pepe Sanchez, Open Source Weekends

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...).
