Sharing is caring, and many botmakers do care.
One of the main goals of Botwiki is to provide resources to help folks make their own creative bots. To that point, a sizable portion of the more than 1,500 bots submitted to Botwiki are open-source.
Here’s a closer look at the motivation for sharing your bots’ code or keeping it private. (Be sure to follow the conversation in the comments.)
It is interesting to see that few seem to worry about protecting their idea and are more concerned about publishing unpolished source code. And that is understandable, especially if you’re a beginner coder or a hobbyist.
But it also shows the need to create a more welcoming environment, where we celebrate creativity and willingness to help others.
