The job of Go maintainer

What does it mean to be a full-time maintainer? Last year, I left the Go Team at Google to become an independent professional open source maintainer. We'll talk about this experiment to establish a new more sustainable funding model for open source maintainers and how we can make it more accessible.

The cryptography standard library is arguably some of the most critical code written in Go. How do we ensure it’s safe and bug-free?
