I find it helpful to model other great developers. If you can find other great developers, then perhaps you can model their behavior. These are some of the software developers that I admire:
Andy Wingo (https://www.wingolog.org) was instrumental in modernizing GNU Guile. His blog is full of wisdom.
Chris Wellon's (https://nullprogram.com/) blog is super engaging. There's all sorts of Emacs and C nuggets of wisdom in his blog.
Drew Devault's blog (https://drewdevault.com/) is pretty fantastic. I personally believe that a great way to help the free software movement is to create free software businesses, which Drew Devault is doing with sourcehut. He also created the sway window manager, which I use on GNU Guix. Sway works fantastically well by the way.
