The Beauty of Open Source

The Beauty of Open Source

Beauty might not be the first word that comes to your mind when you think of open source, but there's beauty everywhere in open source. There's beauty in the designs, in the collaboration, in the relationships are formed when we work together. There's beauty in the software that comes together. Beauty happens because it cultivates a sense of belonging and collective achievement, transcending geographical and organizational boundaries. I want to challenge you to think differently about open source and consider the ways that it allows for a more beautiful world.
