Philly ETE 2023 — How To Steal From Maintainers — Richard Schneeman



Maintainers all over the world are loaded. They’re loaded with tech debt, support requests, and a million things to do each and every day. In this talk, we’ll learn about actionable strategies for lightening their loads. And the beauty of the situation: they’ll never see it coming. We do this ‘one last job’ before I retire, and we’ll be rolling in the green stuff. That’s right. We’re talking open source commits on GitHub 🟩. This is one heist you won’t want to miss.
