Top 10 most monthly highlights

Opensource.com is off to a strong start to the year with a record month in January bringing in 299,171 page views and 192,599 unique visits. We also ran two brand new series: Youth in Open Source Week and Women in Open Source Week. This themed-content attracted new authors to our publication and allowed us to publish a record 60 articles in one month. These stories were gathered from developers, designers, community managers, and more in the open source community who may not have considered sharing their story before, but were encouraged to do so because of our focus on "youth" and "women" in open source. Stay tuned for more themed-content from us throughout the year.

Aseem Sharma got his first major exposure to open source in a large scale enterprise setting. Aseem is a great guy to ask about how to use open source software to learn and conduct research, too, as a frequent user of open source for scholarly work.

At Opensource.com, Aseem has recently joined the Community Moderator program. He writes mostly about the impact of open source on teaching and learning, from bridging the digital divide to the open source way in higher education. You'll also frequently find him in the comments section adding to our community discussions.
