Run Open Code is a group of individuals, most of them anonymous, with various levels of knowledge in various different fields which, in synergy, produce wonderful things. However, they share some common interests as well.
The idea wast to create a group of full or part time freelancers that would like to connect in flexible group of experts and/or enthusiasts able to execute, with success, various projects of all scales.
Although it is hard to distinct the personality of the group of individuals from various fields of expertise and enthusiasm, the founders of Open Run Code defined the personality of the group which must be shared and adopted among group members:
A member uses open source technologies and belives in Open source intiative. He can use proprietary software, but barely, because there is no adequate alternative. He does not mocks with proprietary oriented companies nor persons, he respects their licenses, but he just does not believes in that concept.
He does not have fear to share his work - he is proud of it and believes in ti. He does not share for fame or glory or money, he share because he can and it is fun.
The knowledge is power and he is aware of it. He wants that power, but he wants that power for all people in the world as well. He believes that there is a much smarter persons than him, that's is why he always listen. However, whatever he knows, he share that knowledge - there is more benefit to share the knowledge, rather than a damage.
He avoids to be among people who does not share what they know.
People do intend to stick with what they know and what they do on common basis. He does not. He love to explore, to test, to implement everything that is new and obviously better than legacy of previous time.
New technologies and methods are here to improve the world and he embrace that facts with all is heart.
He lives from the fees of his clients, they provide him with food, drinks and shelter. And he knows that that is possible only if clients are happy. Therefore, he takes all problems of his clients personally, as more important than his own and his most important mission is to solve them flawlessly.
He always take an extra mile for his clients and recommends what is best for them even if that means that he will work more or earn less.
Nothing is impossible - everything is a challenge. And he adores the challenge! That's it, there is nothing more to say about that.
Someone does a thing for money, someone for fame and glory. That's fine, but it is not so important as to have a fun in the process. There is nothing more satisfactory when a job is done properly and in predicted time span.
He donates to ones that are in need. He work for free for the causes that he believes in. He supports the projects for greater good. He believes that world can be better place and he is equally responsible for that as any person in the world.
He recycle and uses rationally resources and energy.
He recognises extraordinary people which moves the boundaries of common knowledge about human beings in fiscal, mental and physiological constraints. He is moved by those people and appreciate them. Those people are not idols to them, but they inspires him.
Whatever he do, it is good for his clients, his enviroment and his society, as well as for whole world. At least, it is neutral, but never evil.
