  4. Above all, I was jobless in 2019. Despite all the

    difficulties, I was really motivated to change things for the better. I read an article on Medium from an Uber's Engineer inviting devs to not only send their resumes but to show their skills by contributing to Open Source.
  5. It was really fun to contribute to projects used by

    other devs. Seeing my name amongst other contributors motivated me to keep going then I continued to contribute again and again.

    this year. I am speaking in front of you today and will do the same in June at Jnation.
  9. I started Open Source in order to show my skills

    to get a job then I got motivated about contributing to give back to the community.
  10. It's not that easy to find time but thanks to

    passion I keep going. I did not yet receive any money from Open Source but I improved my skills which allowed me to travel to work in Portugal and start my speaking journey.
