Hi everyone! I wanted to share an update on our 2021 Gift of Open Source event. Throughout the month of December, we received a total of 185 registrations and 102 contributions to open source projects. This means that over 50% of the people who registered also contributed/participated, which is truly phenomenal!
Registration by Country:
The 2021 Gift of Open Source reached far this year with event registrants from 23 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Burundi, Canada, Colombia, France, French Polynesia, Germany, Greece, Guinea, India, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, the Republic of Moldova, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Romania, South Africa, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Some examples of 2021 Gift of Open Source contributions include supporting the marketing for the Easy Out of the Box Initiative, helping with Drupal.org security advisory coverage applications, setting up semantic versioning for Compound so that future developers won’t accidentally get broken components, participating in the WordPress 5.9 Beta release, and developing a Drupal 9 compatible release of Able Player, to name a few! Your contributions made a huge impact in the open source community.
