About this Episode

This week we’re talking with Chris Grams, the head of marketing at open source subscription startup, Tidelift.

Tidelift offers a managed open source subscription to help companies manage and maintain their dependencies on open source projects. They’re also a sponsor of The New Stack and our partner on a survey we did earlier this year about how developers use open source to build applications in the workplace.

We spoke with Grams about how much time do developers spend handling maintenance and security issues related to unmaintained open source dependencies, what is preventing coders from using more open source components, and what the most important factors developers to consider when choosing a new open source project.
