His announcement started, “I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional…)”. Three decades later, the top 500 supercomputers are all running Linux, as are over 70% of all smartphones. Linux is clearly both big and professional.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/interview-linus-torvalds-linux-and-git" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/jeremy-andrews" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Jeremy</span></span> <span>Wed, 04/28/2021 - 06:29</span> Wed, 28 Apr 2021 13:29:57 +0000 Jeremy 357 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Financially Supporting Your Open Source Development Work - with Dries Buytaert - Pt. 2 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/how-grow-support-and-fund-your-open-source-project-dries-buytaert-pt-2 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>While there are many companies based in open source software that are successfully funding themselves based on consultancy and other services, that’s not necessarily true of individual contributors.

The majority of open source projects are created and maintained by people working on their projects in their spare time. For some, their employers or other companies are willing and able to sponsor open source development projects, enabling their maintainers to do work they would not otherwise be able to do. In this Tag1 Team Talk, CodeMirror and ProseMirror, and Acorn project founder Marijn Haverbeke joins Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers, Vice President of Software Engineering Fabian Franz, and Yjs creator Kevin Jahns to talk about how Marijn funds his projects, and the expectations that can come with that funding.

Depending on the use cases, either method can work well. For CodeMirror and ProseMirror, a tightly controlled code base is part of the culture of the project.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/talk-marijn-haverbeke-pt-1" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Tue, 03/02/2021 - 05:46</span> Tue, 02 Mar 2021 13:46:06 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 310 at https://www.tag1consulting.com
