Who creates open source software?

Proposed by Kristina Hoeppner

When people commonly speak about open source software development, it is often coders that come to mind of being involved. But who else is responsible for the creation of applications that run our lives online and on our devices? This talk seeks to challenge the notion that it is only developers who work on (open source) software and shows the myriad of other people involved.
