Opensource.com community - launched in 2010 ans supported by RedHatpublishes stories about creating, adopting, and sharing open source solutions. (Welcome to the conversation on Opensource.com).

In particular, Opensource.com aims to create a connection point for conversations about the broader impact that open source can have — and is having — even beyond the software world...

In 2016, Opensource.com published an average of 95 articles a month, and in March the site surpassed 1-million page views for the first time. How did the site hit this new milestone? 

The answer is simple: community. More than 60% of Opensource.com content is contributed by members of open source communities, and additional articles are written by the editorial team. A small, international team of community moderators and the editorial team work closely with members of open source communities to curate, polish, publish, and promote open source stories from around the world.
