We are incredibly excited to announce that we are making some big changes to expand the .NET Foundation. As part of our ongoing commitment to open source, we’re expanding the .NET Foundation by inviting the entire open source community to take a more active role. This will also directly guide foundation operations and build the ecosystem.
We’re expanding the board from three to seven members, with one single seat appointed by Microsoft and the remaining six elected by the community. Any person who has contributed to a .NET Foundation open source project is eligible to run for the board and to vote.
These changes enable the .NET Foundation to participate heavily across a variety of activities like event sponsorships and speaker grants, outreach and evangelism, providing more technical support services, and expanding project onboarding and mentoring. There is tremendous open source potential in the huge, worldwide .NET developer base and we want to empower it! This new structure will help the .NET Foundation scale with the growing .NET open source ecosystem and allows our entire community to be more involved.
