I joined Canonical almost two years later as employee 165. Jono Bacon was not based in the same office as me, but he was one of my new colleagues and was in the office and the pub on one of my first days at Canonical. He may well not remember, but he was one of the first people I spent time within Canonical. I was a newbie to open source. I quickly realized that despite what I had thought when I joined, I didn’t understand it. It took me six months to “get it,” to begin to really understand openness and collaboration.
Today, over a decade later, I am on a constant learning curve, learning about both the technology and the people.
