A couple of thoughts on open source communities…

The open source communities continue to grow in amazing ways. In particular, tools made by developers, for developers, get a level of usefulness that it’s hard to compete with.

As I see it, it’s frankly impossible for ecosystems of common utility infrastructure done with closed source to compete with the open source community because open source, when motivated, releases more aggressively and takes more feedback into account.

Here’s the posting about progress on dev.to that reminded me of this.

Cheers,
