As a Mozillian, I’m passionate about building the open ecosystem through mentorship, training and convenings. Through this work I’ve seen that open source maintainers have an outsized impact on our space. Maintainers shape how communities collaborate, secure funding, and ensure projects function sustainably.

Because of this, I’ve joined GitHub — the home for open source! I’m excited to work with the largest community of open source developers on programs that deeply support maintainers. I’ll be running GitHub’s open source maintainer programs, where it’s become clear that strong, skilled, and compensated maintainers are key to a sustainable open source ecosystem.

Are you an open source maintainer? I’d love to chat and learn how we can enable you to thrive. Drop me a line (acabunoc [at] github [dot] com). And of course, you can always reach me on Twitter @abbycabs or GitHub @acabunoc.
