We are connecting the enterprise. You continue driving open source.
Today the competition has shifted from proprietary v/s open source to a range of open source alternatives. Size of the community is a key indicator of success and stability. Know your community of developers & implementers.
Level up the relationship and build a public vetted developer pipeline. Make it easier for employers to find talent around your project and in turn generate funds to better support developers. It's a win win for all.
Enterprise Technology selection is not an individual decision. Traditional products invest heavily into marketing, develop 3rd party references to win. Enable your community to showcase comparatives, bench-marking, reviews, tutorials right around your project and 10x easier.
