I’m an open source developer. What does that mean to me?
Prefer open source software⌗
I always prefer open source software. If no open source software exists to do what I’m trying to do, see the next point.
If the software doesn’t exist, create it⌗
If there’s no software available to do what I’m trying to do, it’s my job to create it.
Contribute to open source software⌗
If I use open source software and find a way to improve that software, or fix a bug, it’s my job to improve it.
These statements are aspirational, not absolute. There are always exceptions and I’m not going to spend my life worrying about what piece of not free software I used today.
