Open Source for Your Career

I was quoted last week in an article for Monster.com on how knowing open source technologies can benefit your career, even as a manager: Open Source Is Not Just for Coders Anymore.

How can a manager benefit from knowing about open source tech? If they are knowledgeable about a variety of open source systems and technologies, they can have their teams use them to rapidly prototype new services without requiring a significant investment up front. Successful prototypes can then either be further developed with OS tools or used to identify proprietary tools with which to build a production system. Either way, the manager has made a valuable contribution that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
