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.

A big thank you to our community of readers in January for sending in story ideas, open source events, and for sharing our content on social media, with colleagues, as well as with kids, students, and peers who are new to open source and the open source way.
