7 big reasons to contribute to Opensource.com


Opensource.com runs like other open source projects. The content collected and shared with you on this site is the result of the time, energy, and contributions from people all over the world. The writers you see published here, the community you see engaged with us on social media, and our readers keep Opensource.com going.

The team working on curating and polishing the stories and news from our contributors is constantly inspired and motivated by the power of the open source movement. And, like any good open source project, we want to promote the great things our contributors say about their experience working with us.

7 big reasons to contribute to Opensource.com:

  1. Career benefits: "I probably would not have gotten my most recent job if it had not been for my articles on Opensource.com."
  2. Raise awareness: "The platform and publicity that is available through Opensource.com is extremely valuable."
