Choose your own adventure: Upstream is Tuesday! ⛰️

Wow: Upstream is less than a week away! Are you joining us Tuesday, June 7? We’ll kick off the day at 9:45 a.m. ET to greet you (we call this the hallway track), then sessions officially begin at 10 a.m. and run till 6:30 p.m. ET. 

We've been working hard to carve out the perfect agenda, and it’s almost complete. The day will be action-packed, so we wanted to give you a sneak peek at the first two hours.


Josh Simmons, senior ecosystem strategy lead at Tidelift, and Donald Fischer, Tidelift CEO and co-founder, will kick off the day, followed by Deborah Bryant of Red Hat, who will discuss zen and the art of contributor maintenance: what have you done for them lately?

Then it's time to choose your own adventure:

  • Trail 1: Join Josh Simmons as he hosts a panel discussion on what it means to be a good open source citizen, featuring Al Gillen of IDC, Alyssa Wright of Bloomberg, Duane O’Brien of Indeed, and Rob Underwood of Goldman Sachs.
  • Trail 2: Join Tidelift co-founder Luis Villa as he discusses the 'we' behind open source projects with Python maintainer Seth Michael Larson.
  • Trail 3: Nancy Gariché, a senior developer advocate for the GitHub Security Lab, will discuss a maintainer-first approach to open source security.

And that's just the first two hours! Having a hard time figuring out which trail you'd rather explore? Good news: everything will be recorded, so you can explore other talks whenever you'd like.

And our team will be live all day in the hallway, offering trivia, giveaways, and fun conversations, and we can help guide you to choose the right path for you. It’s going to be awesome.

Will we see you there? Register here.
