In open source development, we’re used to quickly browse the source code of a project. It’s second nature. If the documentation isn’t comprehensive enough. Or if an error message wasn’t understandable or if we want to understand why an API didn’t return what we expected it to. We inspect the code, and we may end up forking it and proposing fixes to problems we’ve discovered. At times, we may also add new features.

Even though many managed services are open source, how do we discover that a service is open source? And how can we contribute to such a service? Where’s the “Fork me” button for our favorite service and where do we find examples and guidebooks on how to run such a service?

This session explores a proposal for “open source service” branding that Image Builder is currently piloting. The goal is to design a reusable user experience pattern that conveys that a service’s code is open, where it lives, and instructions on how to contribute.
