I'm Attending!June 07, 2023June 07, 2023Upstream 2023UTCUpstream is a celebration of open source, the people who use it, and the humans who create and maintain it.
This is the third year we're hosting Upstream, which is totally virtual and free. Over 2,200 have watched last year's sessions, and speakers included industry experts and community advocates from Indeed, American Express, Fannie Mae, AWS, Microsoft, GitHub, Google, Red Hat, JFrog, and more.
This year's theme: The accidental supply chain.
Over the past several years, the demands on open source maintainers to level up the maintenance and security practices around their open source projects have substantially increased. For good reason—security incidents like Log4Shell have dramatically illustrated the importance of heightened security and maintenance measures.
There’s one problem: the volunteer open source maintainers who create the code most organizations rely on did not sign up to be a part of anyone’s supply chain, and in many cases aren’t being paid to do the work they are being asked to do.
How do we fix the accidental supply chain that open source has become in a way that benefits both the open source creators and the organizations that rely on their work?
That’s the subject of this year’s Upstream! Do you have thoughts on this subject or other ideas for talks that you think might help us gain better insight into how we make open source work better for everyone? Please submit your talk by April 7!
