Contributing to open source: A short guide for organizations
- 08 November 2020
Over the years I’ve had a recurring question from people who are in organizations both big and small: how can we participate in open source communities?
Whether it is because of altruism or strategic importance, many companies, research groups, non-profits, etc want to be involved in open source projects (particularly large and impactful ones like Jupyter), but getting involved can be an opaque and confusing process if you’re not already familiar with open source. Each community has its own nuances and social dynamics, and approaching from the outside can be a challenge.
A new blog with Sphinx
- 10 October 2020
I recently re-wrote all of the infrastructure for my blog so that it now builds on top of the Sphinx ecosystem! This is a short post to describe the reasons for doing so, and a bit about the implementation.
This is a great question. The answer to “should you re-work your blog to use a new SSG” is almost always “no, it’s a waste of your time”, but I think I had a few good reasons ;-)
