We start off by asking each person to introduce themselves, their current occupation, and their current employer and to talk very briefly about how that work relates to open source.
 
Then - questions! FrequentPotential questions include:
* How did you first hear about/get involvedstarted in open source?
* What opportunities are out there for college students? And do you have any other advice specific to college students?
* What advice would you have for if students should participate in open source things in college? Are there particular things that do or don't matter, as things to focus on? (For example, "Definitely start your own open source project rather than contribute to existing ones" or "Don't waste time talking to people on IRC".)
* Do you have advice on what to do when approaching a project for the first time? Either in terms of code, or in terms of community.
* What obstacles have you faced in open source? How have you addressed them?
* What business models are there for open source?
* What are some non-programming contributions you've made?
* What's your favorite open source project?
* Who's the coolest person you've met doing open source stuff?
 
We typically do the career panel just before lunch so that attendees can socialize with panelists immediately afterwards.
