🔖 Designing in the open (archive) by Kjell Reigstad
When participating in conversations on open source project your technical background or history in the company doesn’t matter as much as how you conduct yourself and the value you provide in the discussion.
With open source work you have to let strangers look at your initial sketches. This forces you to articulate and present your work better — clearly explaining ideas and anticipating questions.
By designing in the open you expose yourself to multiple perspectives and ultimately the work is better for it.
