Many people and companies want to make a difference with open source but believe that they need to write code to make a significant impact to communities and projects. However, there are many roles in open source that need people and companies who support and believe in collaborative development to create change. We will cover some of these areas and show how you (and your company) can get involved, make a difference and create an impact.
Our own personal stories cover a wide range of experiences in open source, including development, marketing, advocacy and community management. We’ve both been able to not only help projects and companies, but continue to advance our own careers forward in this exciting space. We look forward to sharing insights with the audience from these combined experiences.
