In last week's issue, I wrote about how you can find gold in GitHub Search. One annoying thing with GH Search is that you can't exclude certain repos, meaning I would have to manually filter out anything from the CNCF because I already know what is being indexed (lots of YAML). Then I got a DM from my buddy Samson Goddy and said, "check out Sourcegraph search."
My mind was blown ⤵️
I have been using Sourcegraph all week for Curiefense, and it cuts my search time down by ~2 minutes, which is ~10 min a week, ~40 min a month, you get the idea. So a huge thank you to a fellow non-code contributor, Samson!
It's about time! I don't know Stefano, but he must be awesome if he was chosen for this position. I look forward to seeing great things happening at the OSI.

I can't believe we are 10 shows away from 100. Logan was one of the first subscribers to this newsletter and is both a code and non-code contributor to open source. Take a listen. Oh, and hi Logan! 👋
