One day in March of 2020, just a few of my Opensource.com teammates and I grabbed lunch to speak about how we might do business from home for the subsequent couple of weeks till this pandemic acquired nipped within the bud. At the top of the work day, I packed up my laptop computer and walked out the door of our workplace constructing. Several months later, we have been all nonetheless working from residence. None of us had returned to our office-based workstations. In July 2020, utilizing security precautions, we have been granted entry to our workstation solely to retrieve private objects. My desk was left precisely as I left it that afternoon in March. Expiring snacks stashed in my secret drawer. Picture frames gathering mud. Comic strips pinned up.
And a pile of a number of sure copies of Best of a decade on Opensource.com 2010-2019. Our final yearbook that was revealed (and printed)!
Like most people, the Opensource.com group needed to pivot how we operated with a purpose to keep related. Sure, we continued our weekly video calls. But in-person conferences, a novel time the place individuals would journey from everywhere in the world to be collectively, have been out of the query. Though a few of this operational stuff has modified, the reference to each other has strengthened. It is due time to publish a brand new yearbook to honor that connection. This yearbook was created to rejoice our correspondents.
The Opensource.com Correspondent Program acknowledges the essential group of our most trusted and dedicated contributors. We just lately closed out one more profitable program yr with 24 correspondents. Each correspondent chosen their favourite article to be included on this downloadable yearbook. In it, you may discover Raspberry Pi tutorials, profession tales, residence automation ideas, Linux tips, and way more.
The above screenshot is from a current video name with just a few of our correspondents. This group reaches far in locale (North Carolina, Minnesota, California, Germany, India, and New Zealand to call just a few) and broad in expertise (educators, hobbyists, sysadmins, podcasters, and extra).
I’m wanting ahead to spending one other yr with the Opensource.com group, whether or not that’s by way of video calls, in-person occasions, an Internet DM, or just studying your article. How would you like to participate?
