Open source projects are like boons from heaven when it comes to developing, learning or implementing almost anything. We often don't take the time to appreciate and realize their contributions in a manner that is befitting. So, which such project(s) has helped you the most either in developing your startup, or as a tool/integration that expanded your product, or as tools that you use daily,or helped you learn in your initial development days, etc.

For tools, Kdenlive has helped me the most, Kdenlive is a video editing tool and I use it to edit my tutorial videos. I am now trying to learn blender. Hopefully this works out too

That's nice @ahonoyvette . I've played around with Blender a while back and it was really fun. It also has lots of tutorials on youtube, which made it easy to get things started. Blender is certainly a fantastic example of a powerful and useful open source project that has potentially helped thousands, if not millions of designers, to learn and work. Looking forward to your tutorials and Blender renders @ahonoyvette . All the best

@notanothervivek Yes, there are a lot of tutorials. Blender is amazing. When I first started learning, it was so intimidating. Cause most blogs were like you need to know the anatomy, mathematics etc. All that is good but I decided to learn it step by step. It's easier now and let's see how things go.

I know that feeling @ahonoyvette . Starting with small steps and just playing around with the available features is what helped me most. All the best.
