Description

Having worked in open source software for the last 11 years, I talk about how the principles of open source software help individuals get noticed and ultimately get paid for the kind of work they want to be doing.

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.

“ — Sir Chant-A-Lot TIME PASSES SWIFTLY. DO DO WHAT YOU LOVE & SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS, YO. OH... OHM....OHM...
