Open Source worth your time (Why?)
First and the important thing improving your own skills, and it gives you something meaningful to work on, sometimes it will be side projects you developed and forgot about but open-sourcing them will help others to solve the same problems and they can participate in them and improve.
Your side projects when splitting into small components and open sourcing them, it makes these components more understandable and use them in different projects.
Open source shows your skills instead of just saying what you can do, and this will make two things:
- Increase your opportunity for better work position
- Enjoy your work because you have been chosen on the skills you showed
In conclusion you can understand that the main benefit of open sourcing will be to you then others so it worth’s your time and effort.
