7:00 pm: Panel discussion on the different kinds of paid work opportunities with open source and how people can turn volunteer contributions into their next paid gigs. How do you contribute relevant OSS work that will help you get your next job? Bring questions! This will not be recorded so it’s a safe space for everyone.
