Talk on "Why Open Source ?"


(Mehul Patel) #1

This is the first time ever I have not presented any presentation, this time it’s gonna be a pure talk where people can ask me anything about open source. I have started my talk with, what I am thinking or believing about open source.

Full Story: https://medium.com/@rowdymehul/why-open-source-8791673cb5d7

Our goal via this talk is to make people understand that open source contribution have no explicit literal like hard-earned cash value. But, the implicit value, i.e. the opportunity to contribute to open source widely outweighs any literal cash value you might gain by giving your time over to a project. e.g. Guess how much money I got paid for contributing to Linux package? $0. Yep, it was $0.

Hope you enjoyed reading my experience! :slight_smile:

Cheers!
