Season 3, 1st edition of 2021 of the FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast: Dan Abramov of React Core Team Interview.
So… welcome to 2021. We’re looking forward to a better year overall, even with some “interesting” beginnings.
To start you out this year, while we’re working on our 2021 meetups and interviews, we want to highlight a few great discussions we’ve had within the community over the past couple of months.
Our first of the year is an interview / fireside chat between Dan Abramov and James McLeod, recorded at the Open Source Strategy Forum (which is FINOS’s annual open source in financial services conference).
James is our Director of Community for FINOS, and host for many of our Open Source in Fintech Podcasts and Meetups.
During this interview we learn whether a project like React would work without backing from a large company like Facebook, whether Hacktoberfest raised issues for the React Core team, and how Facebook promotes InnerSource projects to open source, and more.
So please enjoy this interview, check out our previous episodes, and subscribe to the podcast for some great upcoming discussions on open source, financial services, fintech, and how they all fit together.
