Gábor Hojtsy on why get involved with Drupal community

why really get involved, why not just use the software for free?

get to work on cool technology
get to work in an international team
get to show off your work and talent
get to travel
can also make money

In summary, primarily I was having fun working on great technology, but I was making great friends, get to know people around the globe, widen my understanding, get to travel to various places in around Europe and the US and make money. Well, if you need a good way to ensure your job security, I think this is a way. Your active work life is documented all around the internet, you've been to conferences, established your name in the industry. When you are compared to someone who worked on a closed source legacy system and can only be believed for the pieces in his CV (further details of which are under NDA), who is less risk to take on for a company?

(mis-link in there, which begs the question-- how is the http://drupal.org/project/form_builder D7 port going…?)
