Open Source means Sharing on a new Level: An Interview with Jose de Leon and Jason Berry

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Recently, at the full day Drupal Camp session held at the University of Ottawa, I had the chance to sit down with Jose de Leon and Jason Berry over lunch to chat about ‘open source’ and the implications of this approach to software for major projects. Almost immediately, I was reminded of Einstein’s quote, "The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once." 

Indeed, both Jose and Jason ooze enthusiasm when it comes to talking about code and the concept of programming, and neither one is hung up on issues related to time. Below, they share some insights on open source, documentation, patches, and philosophy.

But as a short-term employee this became even more important because I wouldn’t be in the position forever—I had to make the most of the opportunity!
