What is Open Source?
Open Source is about working and learning in public
Why should you care?
Open Source has so many benefits...
- Real World experience: Many people struggle to get their first or next job due to a lack of experience. Open Source is a great way to get real world experience. Plus you can get multiple mentors to help you along the way.
- Upskill faster: When working in tech, you need to learn new skills all the time. Not just tech skills but also soft skills. Open Source is a great way to learn these skills.
- Grow your network: Having a strong network is super useful. Open Source will help build and grow this network authentically and organically.
- Build a portfolio: Do not talk about how great your work is, show them with Open Source. People can see your work and how you work.
