The tremendous amount of activity in the JS ecosystem is a direct consequence of web being an “open” platform — it is not owned by any particular corporation — it’s at the disposal of the community to be advanced in the right direction. To do this and sustain its growth, we need to make sure our open source communities welcome everyone.

I want to talk about the need for safe and welcoming open source communities in the context of “a web for everyone” so that everyone can play a part in propelling it forward. This talk will be about why we should and how we can lower barriers of entry to open source.

This talk will contain certain excerpts from my own journey* as a newbie open source contributor and what we can do to make our communities inclusive and welcoming.**
