I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be serving on the selection committee for the first round of the newly announced GitHub Accelerator Program.
Many open source maintainers aspire to work full-time on their projects, but find themselves doing this work during personal time while also working full-time jobs. The Accelerator will create opportunities for open source developers to build sustainable, independent funding models for their projects. The 10 week program comes with a $20,000 stipend from GitHub, support, consumption credits, and mentorship from some of the best open source experts in the industry.
You can read more about the program on the GitHub Blog.
