Last year, we conducted a study to find out what kind of motivation individuals have for contributing in free open source software projects without direct monetary remuneration. The study has sought to ascertain the motivations of individuals to engage in FLOSS projects, especially in a context where there is no monetary return for the innovative efforts. The study concludes that individuals might contribute to FLOSS projects motivated by both intrinsic factors (such as enjoying, having fun, the feeling of belonging to a community and voluntary do good for other without personal gains) and extrinsic factors (such as learning new technologies, and use software for own purpose). Interestingly the mean average is not really high for motivational factor “seeking future career opportunities”, compared to other factors, which might give a strong emphasis that individuals have different motivations to contribute to FLOSS projects than getting direct monetary remuneration.
We (Mahmoud Khodier, and Lara Dierichsweller) want to share the analysis of the online survey results with you as some of you helped us to fill this survey. Finally, This study was a part of " Open Source and IP in the Digital Society" course that took place in the Technical University of Berlin, under supervision of Mirko Boehm.
