Organization for Ethical Source takes on stewardship of Contributor Covenant
Contributor Covenant 2.0 Draft
I am an internationally acclaimed speaker, writer, open source advocate, and developer with over 25 years of experience in software development. I work diligently to promote diversity and inclusivity in open source and the tech industry as a whole. I was recognized for my work with a Ruby Hero award in 2016. I am best known as the creator of the Contributor Covenant, the most popular open source code of conduct in the world, with over 40,000 adoptions including Linux, Golang, JRuby, Swift, F#, and Rails and the entire open source portfolios of companies like Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Intel.
I am the co-author (with Naomi Freeman) of the upcoming book The Compassionate Coder, a guide to practicing empathy as a software developer. Slated for release in early 2020, you can learn more about the book at compassionatecoder.com.
I serve on the board of directors for Ruby Together, a non-profit that funds development of critical Ruby infrastructure like RubyGems.organd RubyToolbox.com. I was formerly on the board of RailsBridge, an organization that teaches marginalized people web development with Ruby and Rails.
If you appreciate my work to make open source and the technology industry more diverse, welcoming, and inclusive, please consider supporting my work.
