More important things: "Open Source Mind" About 15 years have passed since the concept of open source got across to Japan. The idea was input and spread to IT engineers.- anyone can participate in the development- information disclosure is good
We can contribute toOSS without writing source code.
Contributions other than development are also important. I want you to practice the kind of contribution you can do. But, please do not forget respect for our engineers.Because, if there were no developers, OSS would not progress.
It is important that they are YOUR own activities. Your worth would notincrease by only retweeting or sharing information.
Spreading information actively Although I had worked for more than20 years, I was awarded at last this year. Last year, I had the opportunity to let more people know about my activities by spreading related information.I think it was good in order to be prised.
Just keep on movingEspecially in the fields that most people find difficult
What OSS developers are poor at Coordination, Negotiation,Decision-making, Management of community and events, and long-term actions
Consider the advancement of the project before your own role, and take the required action. And continue for a long time. (about 20 years maybe :-) ) Probably in this regard, I have used much more time than anybody.
The man who hascontributed to OSS ...... by lip service ? :-)
The man who hascontributed to OSS ...... by ACTIONS !! (^_^)v
But, if no one would participate, I could not have continued.
Events and community gatheringscan take place thanks to the people who gather there.I would like to thank all the people involved in my activities.
