As a Software Architect/Developer
I want to share my accumulated experience
So that I can repay the FOSS community that made my career possible.
My professional career and the Internet in general are possible because of free and open-source software. I’ve been designing, building and hosting websites and web-based applications personally and professionally since 1994 using predominantly free operating systems, compilers, interpreters, application servers and editors. Without countless hours of work by anonymous strangers, my career, lifestyle and hobbies would not be possible. There’s no direct way I can repay all of those to whom I’m indebted. The best thing I can do is share some of the things I’ve made in the same spirit. I hope you can find something useful in my work. If you do, you can repay me by sharing what you can with others.
