When it comes to sustaining Open Source Software I’ve learned a lot this year. In April I wrote a note (well a few) around Open Source Sustainability. One became a blog post, but most just sat and collected dust.

What I learned in 2017

medium doesn’t support nested lists so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sustainers are individuals or organizations who are concerned with the fragile state and future of highly-used and impactful open source projects.

Thank you all, have a great new year!

p.s. Huge thank you to my employer for being so supportive. They are truly down for the cause and I couldn’t do what I do with out them and my team. ❤
