It's a good thing and a potential venue for new clients. I've received a few offers for paid consulting work because of my open-source work (again, mainly consulting, but with some code contributions as well). But of course I wouldn't bet on it. I just like to do it. And none of the offers resulted in anything in my particular case.
Once interviewed an obvious pothead. He listed "irrigation systems" as one of his skills. For a dev position.
Depending on the job, it might be relevant. Surprisingly complex, those irrigation systems. XD
I’m not contributing for an expectation. I’ve build a company from scratch, with these communities knowledge that they are sharing with no expectations. I love Computer Science. Especially, the Science part of this big picture. I would love to work without any exchange for my life. But I need to earn money too… Sorry for my bad English, my practice is not enough to keep it fluent.2👍
Your English is just fine, don't worry about it.2☝️
