Developer experience is one of the most important factors when it comes to building a successful product for developers. Most successful open-source projects share a similar pattern - an engaging developer experience. How can an open-source project engage developers more easily? How should the developer experience be crafted differently compared to commercial products? What are the best practices in providing a world-class developer experience?
