Open Source projects are at the heart of most software that we depend on everyday. Community-supported volunteers work behind the scenes to make open source better for everyone, but it can be a thankless—and penny-pinching—job.

Is it sustainable?

Join us in a live virtual event with GitHub Sponsors to find out. We’ll showcase leading maintainers in the community and discuss the future of open source sustainability.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Get a pulse on the current state of open source sustainability, and insight on where the community is headed.
  • Hear stories from leading maintainers in the open source community about their personal successes and challenges with sustainability.
  • Learn how a blended approach to funding open source can be a model for your own company.
  • Get the latest news coming out of these projects, and how you can get involved.
