Build you career with open source
Being involved in open source communities can improve existing skills, gain new skills, meet new people and opportunities, and better your career prospects. More and more companies are using open source and seeking people with open source experience. If you're just starting out or have been in the industry for some time, open-source can lead you to unexpected places. I'll talk about what are the benefits and challenges of working in open source and put in a little bit about my own journey. I was late to open source, got involved in a project by accident, and became an Apache Software Foundation board member and VP of open source training at a company.
