Open source is awesome. People think it is a daunting task, but once they start contributing, many are able to build their careers and get jobs based on the work they do in open source. Not only does open source help the developer community, but open source maintainers have the (often as of yet missed) opportunity to help increase diversity in tech.
Tracy Lee helps you think differently about how to change the ratio with open source. Open source maintainers can help junior developers and developers who may be changing careers—both of whom corporations may have turned away, citing “lack of experience”—by encouraging them to contribute and helping them prove their technology expertise (while at the same time helping your project along).
