Chris Aniszczyk

Head of Open Source at Twitter

Chris Aniszczyk is the current Engineering Manager of Open Source at Twitter, a key pillar at the heart of the social media revolution. Since 2011, Chris has been leading Twitter’s open source efforts through the creation of open source programs, managing inbound and outbound licensing of open source software, and pushing for the evolution of Twitter’s open source strategy.

Mr. Aniszczyk worked with IBM for four years on the eclipse.org project and was an Open Source developer in Gentoo Foundation. Chris currently sits on the Eclipse Foundation’s board of directors, having co-founded Code9 Consulting in 2008. The consulting firm focused on training people around the world on Eclipse, an open source community of tools, projects, and collaborative working groups. He also spent a year as a Principal Software engineer at Red Hat, where he ensured the success of Eclipse on Fedora Linux.

When he isn’t making dynamic contributions to the open source community, Chris can be found doing yoga, writing, and cycling. He is also an avid runner who has participated in several marathons.
