(2) • One more thing: Pluggable/module architecture • Apache httpd, Nginx, Linux kernel, ... • Emacs, Vim, Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA (and many IDEs), ... • Plagger, Fluentd, ... • Pluggable architecture makes user community to be developer community!
  19. 19. Famous Developer Problem • Some OSS products seems to become famous easily! • especially from famous developers.... • DON'T mind it! • There's many reason which we can't know • Good looking point • Existing (but unknown) use cases
  20. 20. The Way to Live as a OSS developer • We can't create a super product at first • Anyone can't create a super product without continuous improvement
