It's happening! 🤩 The Upstream agenda ✨

Upstream is just a month away, and we are so excited. Join us June 7 for our free virtual gathering to celebrate open source, the developers who use it, and the maintainers and contributors who create it. A theme we are exploring this year: When it comes to making open source work better for everyone, what do we owe each other? 

We are delighted to announce the preliminary agenda today. We’ve already told you about our amazing keynote speakers: Aeva Black of the Azure Office at Microsoft, Deb Bryant, and John Mark Walker of Fannie Mae. But in addition to these awesome keynoters who will be anchoring the day, take a peek at this line-up:

  • Amanda Casari of the Google Open Source Programs Office will share how to build better contributor documentation ACROSS open source.
  • Nancy Gariché, a senior developer advocate for the GitHub Security Lab, will discuss a maintainer-first approach to open source security.
  • David Burns, of the open source program office at BrowserStack, will explain why you’re probably running your OSPO wrong—and how it’s not your fault.
  • Josh Simmons will host a panel discussion on what it means to be a good open source citizen, featuring Al Gillen of IDC, Alyssa Wright of Bloomberg, and Duane O’Brien of Indeed.
  • And loads more awesome talks!

You can check out the full agenda here, but keep in mind that we are still adding a few talks and the day will continue to get even more awesome. Register for the event for free here.
