For me giving back is very important. I use open-source libraries every day and when I can't find one that does what I need, and the purpose of what I'm making seems relevant to at least a couple of other people who must be facing the same thing, then I'll make a library. When I first started in this business everyone was very closed and protected their own work so much, that's changed now and I believe that to push boundaries we need to "stand on the shoulders of giants" rather than waste time reinventing.
That and the fact that if you open-source something and talk about it, you get feedback and consider other perspectives. What I don't want to do is say something that everyone else is saying.
Great. Thanks for sharing your perspective 🙂
