About the show
If you are thinking about suggesting yourself or someone else to be on the show, but were wondering if that would be relevant, I've tried to group together the types of guests we had so far:
- Project managers like Lucy Greco and Lynn 'Cyrin' Conway
- Core developers of a project like Obinwanne Hill and Tom Hudson, or Ire Aderinokun
- Contributor of a project like Joel Berger.
- Enthusiastic (and very knowledgable) user like Tally Barak.
The episodes usually last less than 25 minutes.
If you would like to talk about an open source project, get in touch with Gabor.
