Building the Open Source Community We Want

By Kent C. Dodds

Building the Open Source Community We Want

What kind of world do you want to live in? The world of Open Source Software is supremely vast, and it's growing. We can't sit idly by, coding alone in our closets with an attitude of "if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." We don't want to live in a world like that. The community we want to build around OSS requires intentional effort to maximize the happiness of everyone involved. And the rewards of working toward that goal are serene. I'd like to personally welcome you to the open source community. Bring your distinctiveness and help to make our world a better place.
