Polaris is an open source project hosted by the Libre Space Foundation which goal is to provide spacecraft operators with machine learning tools to monitor, predict and understand their mission’s health status. The project provides important building blocks for autonomous space missions.
With a total visible community of more than hundred and active contributors across the globe, the Polaris project is not traditionally managed. Knowledge centric, consensus driven, zero emails and other principles are keys to successful achievements.
The project requires advanced competencies and complex decisions to be taken. How do we achieve this with minimum overhead on management ? How do we connect needs and constraints and have everybody aligned without sending any emails ?
This presentation is going to show you the key principles, guidelines and mindset that were set up to run such a project in a zero-manager context.
