People often confuse open source with free. Many also feel overwhelmed by the vast array of licenses that may or may not be used for various projects. This blog aims to clear up some of the concepts related to (F)OSS and licensing.

Open Source Heroes is a series dedicated to recognizing and sponsoring up-and-coming open source developers who are motivated to unleash their potential every day. “Thanks for listening, go follow me on Twitter and contribute to my open source project.” That’s what you usually hear at the end of a developer’s talk at a conference.

Open Source Heroes is a series dedicated to recognizing up-and-coming open source developers who are motivated to unleash their potential every day. Yoshua Wuyts is unstoppable. There are few developers today as driven and active as Yoshua is. Just read his Twitter feed for a minute and you'll get a sense of his hustle. His release of Choo, a "5kb framework for creating sturdy applications", has racked up 2k+ stars on Github, and that's

What motivates developers to contribute to open source? Is it the fame and the followers? The thousands of stars on Github? Why sacrifice your time to write code for free?

More than 40 Drupal developers from Manila attended the first ever ContributeX on August 16, 2014 at Microsoft Philippines. Drupal Pilipinas and X-Team partnered up with one vision and goal of giving rocket fuel to Drupal 8. ContributeX is an idea from X-Labs, a fund dedicated to supporting open source communities.

“Contributing to Drupal is life-changing.” Dries, you couldn’t be more right. At DrupalCamp Singapore 2014, developers from all over Asia had the opportunity to spend a day focused on learning, collaborating and preparing for Drupal 8.
