Sustain OSS

A one day conversation for Open Source Software sustainers

No keynotes, expo halls or talks. Only discussions about how to get more resources to support digital infrastructure.

What

A guided discussion about getting and distributing money or services to the Open Source community. The conversation will be facilitated by Gunner from AspirationTech.

Sustainer?

A sustainer is someone who evangelizes and passionately advocates for the needs of open source contributors.

They educate the public through blog posts, talks & social media about the digital infrastructure that they use everyday and for the most part, take for granted.

They convince the companies that they work for to donate money, infrastructure, goods and/or services to the community at large. They also talk to the companies that they don’t work for about the benefits sustaining open source for the future.
