Why You Should Open-Source Your Startup

When we open-sourced everything a month ago, we were nervous. What if no one contributes?, we worried. We had spent a week writing documentation, automating the developer setup, filing easy issues, paring down the repository, and preparing licenses. We wanted to demonstrate that open source should be the default choice for many startups and games, but if we failed, then we would have done the opposite.

We needn't have worried. The CodeCombat Archmages swarmed the GitHub gates, breached the dev setup bug barricade, and presented a plethora of pull requests. Here are the first month stats:

"Okay, sure, that's a lot of contributors, but are they really helping? Those pull requests are probably tiny changes like centering some div. I bet the CodeCombat team is still doing almost all the real work and the open source thing is just for show."

Not convinced by a list of numbers? Good; I wouldn't be, either. Let's dig in and see how much the Archmages have really contributed. Here are the top five open source contributors with links to their commits:

On Chasing a New Dream

With my [Spotlight] posts I am planning on highlighting new and important resources, groups, and individuals in the public and personal education fields.

I figured the best place to start would be the Khan Academy. The Khan Academy is at the center of push to revolution traditional K-12 education throughout the world.

What Is The Khan Academy?

The Khan Academy is a free online resource to help students and adults learn subjects at their own pace. The site has extensive lessons in math, from arithmetic to differential equations. In addition to these lessons they currently have and are adding more lessons in science, economics, computer science, humanities, and test prep.
