- You get in contact with many individuals you would never meet otherwise – and you might get new friends around the world.
- You can share your experience with each other – which brings in additional ideas and features you might never ever have thought about before.
- You can improve yourself by listening to and learning from those who have already implemented a similar solution.
- In the end, you can even save time and energy by actively listening to “upstream” (the port of python-urlgrabber might have taken much more time than inventing and working on a new module together with the upstream maintainers).
- Sharing experience with others
- Getting diverse opinions
- Saving time and energy
- Improving oneself
