10 years ago I was introduced to a secret which changed my life, just as it has changed the life of hundreds of thousands of other developers over the last 20 years. 10 years ago I learned first-hand what makes Open Source projects work. Once I applied this secret technique it changed my life and completely altered the course of my career. In this session I’ll let you in on this secret and show you how you can change your life and the lives of others for the better.
