This week we wrap up our LISA15 interview series. Our community moderator Ben Cotton will be at LISA next week, so we’ll be following him on Twitter (@FunnelFiasco) and keeping an eye on the #lisa15 hashtag to be there in spirit.
Our theme this month is Open Source Food & Beverages, and the first article in that series goes online November 16.
Looking ahead, our January theme is Getting Started in Open Source. We’re looking for articles about how to start using an open source solution or contribute to a project, how to find the right open source community to join, advice for making money in open source, how to find (or start) local user groups or meetups, and tips for attending tech conferences. Proposals are due by December 21, and drafts will be due January 4.
Our February theme is Careers in Open Source. We want to hear about your open source-related work, tips for succeeding in a tech career and for showing open source skills on tech resumes, advice for advancing your career by growing your network, and insights into how attending conferences can get you hired. Proposals are due by January 22 and articles drafts will be due in early February.
