Last week, I had a nice session where I talked about how participating in Open-source made me a better DevOps. Which actually started not just as a professional system engineer, but much earlier as a normal end-user also as a power user.
I really did like the discussion after the session and how people interact with open-source in a different way.
What I really believe, everyone could/should contribute to open-source, it's a fat chance on many levels for all parties.
And if I did it, you can do it too ;)
