Lyn Muldrow

Hey friends! I'm Lyn, a multifaceted engineer/writer/speaker/dev avocado whose open source love journey began during my introduction to the community in coding bootcamp. I currently maintain the maintainers so they can maintain, and find such joy in helping others to thrive.

I'm passionate about increasing diversity in the open source community and being a champion for communities underrepresented in tech.🎉

Hi! I develop software for medical devices. I have used a lot of open source software, but I'm rarely a contributor. (Of course I have a lot of repos on github, but that's not exactly the same.)

I hope to read a lot here about how to give back.

I found the site through Ben Halpern's dev.to post.

Hello, world! My name is Josh and I'm a recovering web developer 😅 These days I do glue work, such as in my role leading the Ecosystem Team here at Tidelift, my now former role as President of the Open Source Initiative, and past roles at Google and Salesforce Open Source.

I'm here to help address systemic issues in open source! ✨

Jordan Kalebu

Hi there, My name is Kalebu, Geek Python Developer who loves building and also contributing to opensource projects, My Journey with opensource projects started in a moment where I needed the Software Engineer role so badly but had no experience so I came to opensource as a way to build my credibility but stayed for community and sense of fullfilment I get by being building opensource tools that get used by thousands of others developers.

I'm here to network, learn and share all opensource, Cheers

Nat Budin

Hi folks! I'm Nat, a polyglot developer currently working at ActBlue. I'm currently lifting three packages, all of which are glue between popular frameworks and external dependencies (React -> Bootstrap modals, React -> Blockly, and Rails/Devise -> CAS servers). Aside from these, I'm currently learning Rust and also working on a modern development toolchain for an extremely antiquated game engine (Sierra's AGI). Happy to be here!
