Yesterday, we announced our new state of the open source maintainer report which included eleven key headlines coming out of our new survey of over 300 open source maintainers. These maintainers responded with what they enjoy (and don’t enjoy so much) about being an open source maintainer, how they fund their work, their views on government and industry standards, and other compelling insights.
There’s a lot to cover in the report, and on Thursday, May 18 at 3 p.m. ET, Tidelift CMO and resident data nerd Chris Grams will give the TL;DR and share the most interesting insights.
He’ll go over questions such as:
- How much time do maintainers spend working on open source projects?
- Are maintainers aware of prominent software security standards initiatives like OpenOSSF Scorecard, SLSA, and the NIST Secure Software Development Framework and do they plan to align their projects to one or more of them?
- Are paid open source maintainers more likely to complete important security and maintenance tasks than unpaid maintainers?
- What do maintainers enjoy most about working on open source and what do they dread?
RSVP for the live webinar to hear the answers to these questions and more!
