Piggybacking on last week's episode on learning to program, I discuss how we might carry over some of the principles of open source software development as a part of our solution-building toolbox as learning experience designers.
I've been contributing to an open source project myself for several months now and I've started a daily(ish) coding practice on game development and the further along I go into my coding and LX design journey, the more admiration I have for the principles of open source. Wouldn't it be great for other newbies if we could be more open with each other?
