A Word on Open Source
I've been writing code since I was 15 and I've always loved it. I only recently started to open-source my code (the last 2 years) and my experience is rather great. I don't have other people contributing to my projects, but it's there if people would like to or whatever. I started open-sourcing my code to not only get other developers in on the development but to show what I'm capable of and to show my learning progress as I write the said application.
Now that I'm involved with git (using it day-to-day), I love open source even more. I don't really contribute to any other projects, but I do try to open source everything I work on if possible. By open-sourcing code, you open the doors for other developers to learn and collaborate.
Where can I get started in open source?
You don't have to use GitHub either, there's plenty of other sites that use git that have projects.
Over the next year, I hope to release more software as open source.
until next time
