@jusrin00 well ACTUALLY beginning of june @jusrin00 actually... may @jusrin00 actually april @noffle Yep! Need to do it out of curiosity not peer pressure or whatnot4. Forking and contributing to other open source projects becomes less scary, becomes normal3. We foster a culture of open source, so that a closed source library is frowned upon2. You discover new patterns, new coding styles, new languages, making you more flexible as a team player1. You learn how any system works, which helps debugging and productivityBest programming habit to develop: read the source (of anything).What if there would be a programming language with interchangeable syntax? ⬇ https://t.co/AEnTT6cT29
