šŸ“¢ Looking for advice: What are the pros/cons of building software with open source code?

I'm a non-tech founder working to build a community platform that will retain intermediate women in technology. I'm currently weighing build options and see open source software as a really great opportunity to engage our existing community members and create meaningful volunteer projects. Does anyone have experience/advice building with open source code? Pros or cons you can share? I need to make an informed decision because it will affect the type of team I pull together. Any insight you can share is appreciated! šŸ™šŸ½
