[PODCAST INTERVIEW] Ahmad Awais — Open Source as a Lifestyle

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

A couple of weeks ago, I got interviewed by the WordPress PressThis Podcast about my favorite topic, i.e. Web & Open Source.

I enjoyed talking about how I got into open source, grew a huge network of followers especially over 10,000 developers who use my open source code, got half a million open source software downloads, and how it has actually become more than just software to me, and that it’s practically a lifestyle choice now.

🚀 If you’d like to know more about me and how I have adopted Open Source as a Lifestyle —  take this podcast for a listen or listen it via the SoundCloud widget below.
