    It’s OK to make money from your open source

    It’s OK to make money from your open source

    Adam loves a good dark theme and supporting a fellow creator, and Hedy Li finished the episode we did with Nikita Prokopov covering FiraCode and reached out saying Zeno Rocha’s work on Dracula deserved the same credit. We agreed. So we linked up with Zeno about his passion for open source, how he’s changed his mind on making money with open source, his big release of Dracula Pro and the future of Dracula, and of course his new book – 14 Habits of Highly Productive Developers. Check for a link in the show notes for details on how to get your hands on Zeno’s book for free through our giveaway.

    The intersection of coding and fonts

    The intersection of coding and fonts

    A listener request led us to Nikita Prokopov and FiraCode, and we’re sure glad they did. When we think of open source software, fonts aren’t usually high on the list of things that need maintaining. That’s not true when your font also supports hundreds of programming ligatures like FiraCode does. Nikita has his hands full!

One of the greatest podcast for developers.

I am a listener for many years now, and The Changelog is one of the best podcasts for a developer, period. I covers a multitude of subjects and what’s more important to me is that the hosts won’t get in the way of the guests, letting they express their opinion while making the hard questions. Another high point is the subjects covered are up to date on the latest technologies, specially from the Open Source community and the programming languages we love so much. Thank you Adam and Jerod for the great work.
