Experiences

Kim Crayton on github.com:

Contributing to open source not only allows businesses of every size to take advantage and build upon the talents of others, it’s also an avenue for those new to coding to acclimate themselves to the development process in ways that allow them to practice, experiment, and showcase themselves as valuable and contributing members of the community.

Chris Lamb on github.com:

I got to where I am today by contributing to open source software, allowing me to not only improve my skills as a software developer but also to increase my network of colleagues and to meet new and interesting friends from extremely diverse cultures. I can highly recommend it.
