The Changelog

Open Source moves fast. Keep up.


I’m new here. What is The Changelog?

The Changelog is a blog and podcast covering what’s fresh and new in open source. We are developers, designers, front-end hackers, product makers, UX lovers, and more –  dedicated to building better open software.

How do memberships work?

Memberships help us keep the lights on around here. You can directly support this site and the Changeloggers by getting a membership for $4 a month or $40 per year.

Memberships also allow us to keep this site and the podcast 100% ad free. What does that mean? That means that the site has no ads, and the podcast has no ads, and we’d like to keep it that way. Members help to make that possible.

Why do you need partners if you have members?

Much like members, partners are the equivalent but for brands – and we’re really picky about what brands we want to partner with. Having partners helps us to allow brands we know and trust to support our efforts as well. Other than mentioning them as a partner who’s helping to support and grow The Changelog, we are under no obligation to promote them or their services. They simply want to be a part of making The Changelog possible – which is a good thing.

Can I check the status of my membership?

Yes. FIrst you need to signin, then you can view the details of your membership and payment history.
