Contributor spotlights: Jen Kagan and Federico Mena Quintero

Recently, Jen Kagan has been working on a series of interviews with people who work in open source. Jen previously contributed an article on web browser cookies to Issue 7 with co-author Tara Adiseshan. The most recent interview in the series is with Vesha Parker who co-organizes Progressive HackNight. Jen asks, “What does ‘open source’ even mean?”

In Issue 4, Federico Mena Quintero wrote “Legacy Systems as Old Cities”, on the topic of the history of urban planning and how that relates to long-running open source projects. Federico has translated the article into Spanish: “Los Sistemas Heredados como Ciudades Viejas”. This weekend Federico will be at Rust+GNOME 2017 Hackfest part#2 in Berlin, say hi if you’re there!
