In the middle of 2021, my co-founders and I were struggling to get our open source business off the ground. We were struggling with questions of community, licensing, product and business models. Eventually, the questions became so many that I decided to reach out to some of the world's best open source maintainers and creators to ask them and avoid some of the biggest pitfalls. The best part about open source is that once a problem is solved, if it is shared with the world, we don't have to solve it again. With that ethos in mind, I decided to start recording these insightful conversations and turned that into a podcast called The Craft of Open Source. Fast forward to today, I've met with over 40 of the Open Source Communities greatest contributors and want to share those learnings with the audience. Some of the people that we've interviewed include: DHH of Ruby on Rails, Mitchel Hashimoto of HashiCorp, Heather Meeker of Open Source Capital and many many more!

Co-Founder & CEO, Flagsmith
I used to be a software engineer. Now I'm jealous of software engineers. I am currently working full time on Flagsmith, an open source feature management platform that we started in 2018. Prior to Flagsmith, I ran a software agency in London for 20 years.
