Hi, newsletter subscribers! Thanks for being interested in Changeset
Consulting and my open source project management work.
2017 was, by far, Changeset’s busiest year. The firm helped grow the
Zulip community, spearheaded a language-agnostic, general-purpose linter
tool for OpenNews, and worked on two different government health IT
applications, just to name the biggest projects. I wrote up a
year-in-review post at https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2018/01/02/0
in case you want more details.
Just in the last few months, I started working on two exciting projects
with organizations close to my heart. I’m thrilled that the Electronic
Frontier Foundation hired Changeset to improve HTTPS Everywhere’s
project workflow for developers & maintainers, working with Kate Chapman
via Cascadia Technical Mentorship. And, thanks to funding by Mozilla’s
open source grants program and via the Python Software Foundation, the
Python Package Index – basic Python community infrastructure – is
getting a long-awaited overhaul. I’m the lead project manager on that
effort, and Laura Hampton is assisting me.
