10 Ways To Participate In Open Source

I wonder why more open source users do not actively participate in the open source community and become committers or contributors.

After understanding a project’s capabilities and roadmap, anyone is able to start directly hacking the source code and contributing useful extensions. Because open source is a distributed, participatory meritocracy, the upside benefit is high and the barrier to entry is low; you don’t have to move, be employed by a Valley startup, give up your day job, or wait to obtain a 4 years for a degree.

Over on opensource.com, I have published an article describing 10 Ways to Participate in Open Source.  If you want to hear the webinar presentation, register at the WSO2 site.
