Origin is committed to being a 100% open-source project and we firmly believe in the shared values of the open-source software community. As part of our ongoing video series, Senior Engineer Franck Chastagnol tells us why Origin being open-source matters and how much he enjoys working with the rest of the Origin team and community.

Working for an open-source project was a new experience for Franck, who previously led engineering teams at PayPal, YouTube, Google, and DropBox. In his video interview, Franck talks about how contributing to the greater community as opposed to working for a company primarily concerned with shareholder profits motivated him to join the Origin team.
