Looking to Partner With Open-source Maintainers

・1 min read

Hey dev.to! I recently got accepted to YC's Startup School. I'm exploring different ways for OSS maintainers to sustain their projects financially. The current concept is DevFlight. Right now I'm looking for open-source maintainers (preferably working on infrastructure projects) who are interested in partnering with me. If you're a maintainer/significant contributor and you'd like to chat, please send along your email via this signup form. General feedback in the comments section is also appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi Victor, congratulations!

About how OSS maintainers sustain the projects...

Henry Zhu @hzoo , maintainer of Babel.jsm is vocal about sustainability in open source projects, check his latest post: dev.to/hzoo/babel-7-is-released-lb3

Evan You, maintainer of Vue.js, recently shared his story about becoming a full time dev on Vue through Patreon contributions.

Both aren't infrastructure projects but I'm sure you can take away something from their experiences.

Good luck!

 

Thanks @rhymes this is helpful. I'm very curious to read about their experiences. Definitely still open to chatting with non-infrastructure based OSS project maintainers if you're interested @hzoo !

 

@ben starts a weekly 'looking for open source contributors' post. Here's the one from last week -- maybe you can ask some of the folks there :)

 
 

Good luck, I hope you find some great insights. You're more than welcome to publish some of these learnings back here as you go!

 

Thanks Ben. I'll definitely contribute back!

How to Improve Writing Skills as a Non-Native Speaker

Let me begin by saying, that writing a new post either on technical or soft skill topics is always a challenge for me. Why? Because I am not a native English speaker.
