No one corporation, individual, or organization can save or sustain open source. There is no sweeping solution to sustainability, as we have seen in decades of trying to maintain the commons we all depend on. Project funding, corporate support of full-time contributors, and balance in contributors’ lives are all critical to keep a large project healthy. But this isn’t all doom and gloom: we provide hope for our own future. Join Tabitha and Paris, as they discuss how your intentionality helps our sustainability. As an organization participating or an individual donating their time, how can we help each other successfully let our projects go on without us? How do mutual aid principles apply in open source? Where do corporations fit into the larger “us”? Intentional open source strategies sustain our long term needs by supporting the people doing the work. There isn’t one person or group working on open source sustainability - we all need to in whatever way we can: through participation, sticking around, and having a plan. Walk away with a beautiful idea of how you are contributing to the long term success of Kubernetes and the open source projects that you care about.
