We also started our second week in our Careers in Open Source series, which includes advice on choosing a brand name for your open source project, interviewing for culture fit, growing your developer community on GitHub, adding open source experience to your resume, being an open source leader, non-coding careers in open source, and more. Later this month, we'll kick off a new series on Diversity in Open Source.
