I HAD TO EXPLAIN WHAT THE WEB WAS.
“ TEH DRUPAL HAPPENED “Community plumbing”
THE REWARD ‣ Made money freelancing. Got out of debt. ‣ Convinced my boss to get into Drupal. He was already interested in Open Source. ‣ I was having fun
PERSONAL REWARDS ‣ Inspired! Smart community. ‣ Learning! Asynchronous development methodology ‣ Empowered! Contribute to something bigger than myself. ‣ Validation of my ideas and skills. ‣ Collaboration & Diplomacy
PROFESSIONAL REWARDS ‣ Reputation! I was starting to make a name for myself... from Iowa. ‣ e more work I did, the more people wanted to pay me for the work I did ‣ Was oﬀered a book deal.
ZOMG! OPEN SOURCE IS FUN, BUT IS THIS A REAL JOB? <ENTER THE F.U.D.>
MAKING A DECISION ‣ One day I'm going to die. ‣ e value of “Being free to fail” ‣ e 10 days/ 10 months / 10 years rule ‣ I'll regret this if I don’t try.
TAKEAWAYS ‣ Hippies don’t wear clothes. ‣ Contribute to a project bigger than yourself. ‣ Default to open. ‣ Let people know you before they hire you. ‣ Give what you do a URL.
