Fork me on GitHub

From the Nov 2012 CodeConnexx conference. From the official conference description at Many people use Open Source but are intimidated by the idea of contributing to a project. "I'm not smart enough!" "I don't know enough" "What if people laugh at me?" In this talk I'll teach you why and how to contribute to Open Source. I'll cover: - Why you can and should contribute - What are the motivations for contributing? - What kind of contribution can I make? - Impostor syndrome - Finding a good project to contribute to - Navigating the community - Getting up to speed and getting productive - Making your first contribution At the end of this talk, attendees should feel empowered and ready to contribute their first patch, pull request, bug, test, or documentation.
