What is it like to be an open source maintainer in 2021: A discussion of the Tidelift maintainer survey highlights
11:00 AM - 11:45 PM EST

Earlier this year, Tidelift completed its first ever survey of open source maintainers. Nearly 400 maintainers responded with thoughts about how they fund their work, what they enjoy about being a maintainer, what they don’t like so much, along with a host of other interesting insights. In this panel, Tidelift’s Brenna Heaps invites some of her maintainer friends to discuss key findings from the survey.
