How developers can get involved in public policy
The global developer community are unique and important stakeholders in public policy. Open source has attracted unprecedented attention from governments and the global policy community, as recent security events have highlighted the criticality of open source while concerns about autonomy, competitiveness, and transparency attest to the power of open source. New research has also made open source more intelligible to policymakers. With more policymakers aware of OSS, there are more opportunities to champion open source and developers in public policy. In this interactive workshop, we'll share GitHub's developer policy wins, discuss where the future of tech policy is heading, and identify ways for developers to speak up and get involved in public policy.
