Last week, we kicked off Maintainer Month with Enhancing Support for Open Source Maintainers. Now, we're continuing our love of maintainers with our Maintainer Monday post, shouting out some of our favorite maintainers and their projects.

This week, I'm choosing another two maintainers from the X Spaces I've been doing for OpenSauced. Thank you, Amy Dutton and Nate Wienert for being guests and supporting the open source community.

Amy Dutton

Amy is a multi-talented Lead Maintainer on the RedwoodJS Core Team. She's kind, knowledgeable, and well-spoken, and a fantastic leader in the community. During our conversation, Amy shared the new RedwoodJS Release that includes React Server Components. She gave her insights on the importance of good developer experience and getting feedback from your users. She also talked about creating demos and projects as part of her work as a way to showcase what you can do with RedwoodJS.

Nate Wienert

Nate is the creative force behind Tamagui, a fun and innovative UI kit. He combines his technical skills with a playful approach to design, making Tamagui a delightful experience for users and developers alike. In our chat, Nate discussed the challenges and joys of building and maintaining Tamagui, including finding sponsors for his project. He shared the importance of building something useful, being consistent, and the sharing the interesting things you learn along the way.
