  • If you feel like you know something really well, don’t be afraid to admit that you might be wrong or there may be something else better

From this episode:

...if you actively don’t reach out, and I think we don’t do this as open source projects, pretty much at all right now. Then you also miss out a lot because there are a lot of people who want to contribute to open source, but they don’t know how and they don’t feel welcome. It’s not that they don’t feel welcome because we actively keep them out.

They don’t feel welcome because there’s a certain kind of people who really enjoy [the way] open source project work today, and they like it. And when someone who is different looks at these projects, and sees the tone in them and sees what kind of people are contributing...they see ‘Oh, this is not a space for me.’ This is something that we need to actively change and I think that our conferences showed us that it is worth it and we can do it.”
