    I don't know a single company in my local job market that's not doing some kind of "free" training, either on unis or some community meetings. It's advertising and recruiting.

    @PAKA Just like FB and MS are doing with React and VS Code.

    In NL we have the saying (roughly): only the Sun rises for free (every morning).

    @guzVLZ It's a win win as long as both parties are aware of what is going on.

    I've qualms with people saying "FB/MS gains nothing from their open source stuff. They do it for free/community." Ehm, no.
