re: I will now charge my clients a fee to support open source projects VIEW POST


Developer: it's got all of the bells and whistles.

Company: okay I don't care what it's got, does it work and make us money.

Developer: ...

Analyst: Yes looks like users are clicking the money button.

Developer: by the way, we donated your money to a chosen cause you know little or care about, no not a charity, an open source project.

Company: ...

New Developer: Hello!


As I stated earlier: if the company has an issue paying up to 160 euros per month for software projects which help them make hundreds of thousands, if not millions of euros in revenue per month, I really have an issue working for that company.

In that case I'm very happy to leave (or not even start at) that company.


Contrary to my light hearted satire, I think companies should care about the stack (because it's integral to thier servival) and if they do they won't mind the donation. Read that satire how you will but open source is the power of people and mad ideas come to life. But I'm happy to laugh about the situation.
