Vivek Saraswat Ask Me Anything

Hi Alex! I think one thing that surprised me is how quickly open-source became mainstream--the community itself has seen a huge influx of developers from all kinds of backgrounds over the last few years, which I believe is an awesome and needed thing. On the commercial side, open-source has also become the norm as well. It used to be that enterprises were wary of using open-source code and preferred proprietary solutions. That era has long passed, and as a result of that now if you are building an infrastructure or developer-oriented startup, you strongly have to consider why you shouldn't use open-source as your code choice.
