Chris Krycho is a follower of Christ and contributes to the TypeScript and Ember.js communities. He also hosted the New Rustacean podcast, which sought to teach Rust through a purely audio format.

We talk to Chris about how involved he is with Rust now that he no longer hosts New Rustacean, how his background as a Christian influences how he interacts with open source communities, as well as how he wrestles with the tensions of working on a project in the open that he hopes will one day become a source of revenue for him and his family.

  • Chris's website.
  • Chris's 2017 Rust Belt Rust talk titled Becoming a Contributor.
  • Chris's newsletter issue where he writes about the tensions between wanting to keep the source of the rewrite project open, but still maintain the ability to generate revenue from it.
  • The project allows you to write cross-platform applications using any web framework and then compile it into a performant native binary.

Humans of Open Source

A podcast where we explore the human side of working on open source software. We talk to contributors about how, what, and why they contribute in order to uncover the human element behind the open source communities that power our digital infrastructure.
