Every commercial open source project has its own origin story. In this session, Kyle will tell the story of how he created an early React web framework for fun and grew it to a widely used open source project with millions of funding & dozens of full-time employees. Many open source maintainers would like to do this. Kyle will discuss what made Gatsby unique and extract some lessons that will be helpful for other maintainers looking to make the same journey.
