Makes sense. Probably picking an open source project to work on will also make a person focus on a specific tech stack instead of being a generalist.
Funny story, this one guy who had a startup listed posts years back and we applied. During his pitch/interview he gave us a project that we'll be working on where he said there's no incentive but we'll get shares of the profits he will make from the app. We agreed on it of course but we ended up stealing the idea for ourselves.
I wouldn't say stealing his idea is something you should be bragging about. That's a rather blatant betrayal of trust, and highly unethical. :(
True. I barely looked at it that way. It's probably that bad luck that got us nothing out it the move.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
