Over the last half-decade, the number of young people in India embarking on a career path in software has been on the rise as a tech renaissance sweeps across the continent. From senior developers working full-time jobs or freelancing from the comfort of their homes, to junior and mid-level programmers honing their craft, the developer community is turning to open source as a way to level up and attain world-class status.

For newbie developers, collaborating on open source projects is the fastest way to learn – it’s like labs for tutorials. For senior developers, contributing to and collaborating on open source help sate the desire to build cool things that matter, along with building up bragging rights in the tech community. That’s why every now and again, a poll surfaces that displays the companies or individuals who contribute the most to Open Source. Collaboration is a skill that comes in handy beyond their typical 9-5 engagements – it’s one of the skills that help them stay a cut above and ahead of the curve.
