Upcoming Talks in March and April
I'm planning to deliver four talks or sessions in the next several weeks.
MozFest 2021 (online, has already begun): one session tomorrow and one day after tomorrow! "How To Get A Project Unstuck" (discussion, 2021-03-09 21:15 CET/3:15pm EST), and "Apply for Grants To Fund Open Source Work" (skillshare, 2021-03-10 21:15 CET/3:15 PM EST).
GitHub OCTO Speaker Series (online): "What Would Open Source Look Like If It Were Healthy?", March 30, 2021, 1:30 PM EDT. This (ridiculously ambitious?) talk will be streamed live on Twitch.
When I think about open source sustainability, I think about money, sure. But I also think about what configurations of funding would be more likely to keep legacy infrastructure ticking along AND provide R&D opportunities for innovators; what tooling we need; how a stronger ecology of consultancies would change the interactions among volunteers, companies, and other institutions; etc. I'll discuss what I've learned about healthy maintainership, and what a healthier future would look like for the open source industry.
I've updated my increasingly unwieldy talks page accordingly. (Redesign coming in a few months, to that plus the rest of this site.)
