Sustain OSS at State of Open Con

Where: Olivier, 2nd Floor (Access by Lift B Only)

Sustain is a community exploring, documenting and working to answer a single question: how do we maintain open source software?

Join us for a series of peer-led updates, conversations and collaborative workshops on the key issues surrounding open source sustainability today: community development and governance, fundraising and managing money, corporate support and participation, legislative and legal development, personal leadership… and burnout.

Sustain provides spaces and creates events with and for those who are concerned with the with the fragile state and future of highly-used, impactful open source projects. If that sounds like you we’d love to shape our event with you:
