Doug Cutting also shared his views on open source. One of the reasons he likes open source is because open source software has a long life. The commercial software he wrote before 2000 was no longer used, and everything he wrote for various open source projects since 2000 still exists. Open source software does not suddenly disappear like a commercial product because of a production stoppage or company bankruptcy.
"Open source is good for individuals and proof of the ability. Even if you change jobs, the open source projects you participate in can still continue, you can still contribute to them."
Doug Cutting considers all softwareDevelopmentEveryone should incorporate open source into their career planning, because there will be more eyes to see your code. You will have a bigger community, they know what you are doing, they will give you advice and feedback, they can participate directly in your project, which is good for your career.
“One of the most important things for developers is that they need to consider how open source software they build is adopted by others and expand and improve in new ways. Therefore, it is important to have good algorithms and smart technology. You need to code in a way that other people can continue to maintain the project after you."
