I'm a full-time OSS contributor at Forem. I previously was a part-time contributor to Samvera.org. In those cases, contributing to OSS has been my paid job. I have also contributed to other OSS projects.
A day in the life is as follows:
Now, with the above, I enter into the free flow part of the day. This will involve maybe a meeting or two throughout the day; usually one on ones. I'll hopefully get a few hours of coding towards a task completed. I might end up writing an issue or two to telegraph what work needs done. Somedays I might perform a task breakdown of a larger project/epic.
I'll definitely review PR or follow-up on an issue that I've been stewarding. I'll probably hop on DEV.to and engage in some conversations; maybe write a post.
I might also do some pencil and paper work to sketch out a diagram, and then translate that to PlantUML and write up an internal post to share context. Invariably, I'll end up looking up how something is implemented and share that with someone.
All told, it's a variety of tasks.
Thanks for sharing, Jeremy! Sounds like a great balance of structured tasks and space for free thought.
