This month we are happy to have Henry Zhu - the only full-time core maintainer of Babel.js (https://babeljs.io/). Henry will speak to us about Babel, what it is like to maintain an open source project, and work-life balance. Henry took a big leap of faith when he quit his job to maintain Babel full time. Since then he has become a big contributor to the open source community, not only in code, but also in the conversations he has started about the nature and sustainability of open source software. Henry blogs at https://www.henryzoo.com and produces the podcasts Maintainers Anonymous (https://maintainersanonymous.com/) and Hope in Source (https://hopeinsource.com/).
