Reader Testimonials

Elisabetta Carrara
Elisabetta Carrara

Open source is as a global philosophy. As a "lifestyle".

It is not a generalization as [the book] define it at the beginning. Usually we tend to relegate this philosophy to small niches. Instead it relies on high values of the human being and should (could) cause a revolution for the better if applied sincerely in every field.

This books opens to the readers the gate to the Open Source Communinity

Not a book for perfect people, rather a text for all those who want to explore new things about the digital society we live in, and about personal development.

Writing about how to contribute is more valuable than contributing itself

Giving wider impact for the world, especially for open source projects. It is also taken up how to gather the power of volunteers not only contributing by yourself alone.
