And, while normally, I’d post this before the stream, but I’m posting it after and …


We got out!

Or, in the case of UNLOCK! Star Wars Imperial Agents, we got the crystals.

I know I know – most of you didn’t even know I did this – every Saturday night I do an escape room live on a stream via YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Twitch, but I’m just not feelin’ it.

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred]


At 2000 GMT+1!

Streaming via Contributing.Today!

I’m super chuffed to join a panel at the meetup on mental health in open source with the amazing Tierney Cyren (@bitandbang, he/they), OSS Engineering + Developer Advocacy at Microsoft and the awesome PJ Hagerty (@aspleenic, he/him), founder DevRelate, Senior Developer Advocate Mattermost, initiator – an initiative “to start a conversation about mental health in tech”.

Our kickass moderator is the venerable Floor Drees (@FloorDrees, she/her), Community Advocacy Program Manager at Microsoft.

But first the news: brings together the communities we work with to get them excited about contributing to Open Source software or finds new communities and projects to work on.

One of the ways they do this is by this non-affiliated meetup series in the weeks leading up to FOSDEM 2021 with interviews, panels, presentations, and, of course, all things contributing.
