  21. 21. 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
  22. 22. Personal thought
  23. 23. We can contribute to OSS without writing source code.
  24. 24. 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.
  25. 25. Let your activities be known by others
  26. 26. It is important that they are YOUR own activities. Your worth would not increase by only retweeting or sharing information.
