This talk is to discourage folks who get into opensource for self-beneficial purposes.
People fail to understand (especially new folks) that opensource is a selfless service: you do it for the community and the love for the project, not the self-glorifications and travel funds.

This is a reason why most individuals pop-up the questions at the end of most opensource events “what are the benefits of contributing?”
The talk aims to impact the granular understanding of opensource being 100% Beneficial with 0 Benefits; not as a reward for participation, collaboration or contributions, but gratitude for selfless service.
Opensource has zero (0) spelled out Benefits for you (the collaborator), You (the collaborator) make your contributions count which in return becomes Beneficial to you (the collaborator).
