Open Source Advocate – Week #1

This week I started out as an Open Source Advocate at Zalando in the shiny new Open Source team with Paul & Per. Together, we are the 3 P’s!

The team is meant to develop Zalando’s Open Source strategy and consult the wider organisation on how to implement it safely, measurably and with impact in mind.

The week has been exciting and fun; we have been setting up our initial backlog of upcoming tasks, drawing up our team / open source strategy and off-course, getting to know each other!

Learnings 

  • I learned about KDE! The first day, I disappointed my Manager by asking him what that acronym meant 😉
  • I am curious to dive deeper into ‘community metrics in open source‘. There are lot of tools, articles out there and there is certainly a lot to learn on this space.

Announcements

My last blog post was about wrangling in the OPEN space for MozFest. Considering I will be doing lot of things related to OPEN (source) world, here is my new column on this space:
