Episode 508: Netlify's Head of Community Perry Eising on Creating Accessible and Inclusive Tech Events
September 17th, 2019 | 21 mins 9 secs
When applying for an open award for people that did activism in the Portland tech community, Netlify's Head of Community Perry Eising found himself having to identify outside of his gender identity as a result of the form not having an option for nonbinary people to be recipients of the award. After realising he was getting mixed signals, he decided to ask the company about it directly, "That moment of bravery was just, I didn't know how they were going to respond. I didn't know how clued in they were to having people who were nonbinary as part of their organization, whether they knew what that was, whether they were going to treat me well, whether they were going to laugh at me. Us as underrepresented people in tech, I think there's always that nervousness if we're going to bring up a concern to people who were organizing something, whether they're going to have the knowledge to take that in, or whether they're going to reject us, or whether they're going to laugh at us," Eising said.

When asked what makes a solid leader in today’s open source communities, the answer often varies depending on who you ask. In this podcast hosted by TNS Podcast Producer Kiran Oliver, the topic of leadership expanded beyond the basic, “What makes for a competent leader in today’s OSS community?” to encompass the ways in which we as a community can and should do to better help underrepresented minorities become leaders in open source.
CNCF Director of Ecosystem Cheryl Hung, Microsoft Director of Open Source Initiatives Ashley McNamara, Aqua Security Technology Evangelist Liz Rice, and Two Sigma Engineer Leah Petersen all started their journeys in open source at different times, with very different goals in mind.

Microsoft has taken an approach that essentially meets the developer halfway by providing abstractions so tools like Jenkins and Terraform can seamlessly work in hybrid, multi-cloud environments using third-party tools. It's a mouthful but speaks to the concept of federation and how abstracting operations has become an important philosophy for Microsoft as it works to help developers bridge the gaps that have long been impassable. The intricate operations requirements to glue disparate components has long eluded customers. To close the gap means meeting developers where they are.
In essence, Microsoft is offering a platform for developers to use the tools they know and love instead of rebuilding from scratch, said Arun Chandrasekhar, Senior Program Manager at Microsoft Azure, who joined us for a conversation at OpenSource Summit in Los Angeles in September.
