What I’ve learned from (nearly!) a year of open source

"Whilst Agnitio v1.0 was only released 7 months ago I announced
that I was writing the tool at SecurityBSides Las Vegas last year
and that it would be 'free for anyone to download and use' . That
particular statement makes me think of one thing in particular I
learned and I will cover later in this post.
People will try to put you and your work down
This is the biggest and hardest lesson I probably learned over
the past year. Most people who have used Agnitio have praised and
enjoyed the application but there has of course been a small amount
of people who provide nothing but negative feedback and trouble.
The negative feedback and trouble has come from people in a wide
range of positions in our industry including people high up in
organisations such as OWASP who should be encouraging projects like
this not trying to put them down.
