OSS Funding & Sponsorships

A presentation at contributing.today by Tobie Langel

This monthly meetup is for sharing knowledge about all things contributing, maintaining, and using Open Source. We’ll have interviews, panels, presentations. We aim to be welcoming for everyone, it doesn’t matter if you’re new to Open Source, interested, or have your own Wikipedia page. If you want to collaborate, have a topic in mind or something you want to share, contact one of the organizers:
