What is Software by Default? The title actually refers to a long running inside joke. Often people pronounce my first name in such a way it ends up sounding similar to the word ‘Default’ (how would you pronounce Dewald?). Add to that earning a living as a programmer and the result becomes Software by Default :)
The intention behind this website is to serve as a platform for the open source projects I’m involved in. Open source, aka free stuff! If you want to collaborate on an open source project let me know in the comments section, or contact me via twitter @DefaultSoftware
You don’t need to be a programmer to be part of an open source project. If you are knowledgeable and have experience in a specialised field, or even if you have creative/innovative ideas you can contribute to the open source community without having to write any code.
