In this interview, Adam Gordon Bell talks with Evan You, creator of Vue.js, about his journey into full-time open source.
I’m not a web developer, but I found it very inspiring to hear how Evan found success by pursuing his dream. The episode also provides some really good insights into how much work and emotional labour goes into maintaining open source projects.
Next time you feel like ranting about a project, stop and think how the creators might perceive your words. Evan talks about the disproportion of negative vs positive feedback online and the opposite ratio offline. So - if you’re using a tool that you like: tell the creators - it will make their day, I promise.
