This presentation will be of interest to those who have never been active within an open source project or have been lurking instead of contributing. It will discuss the following:

  • why would I want to contribute?
  • how do I narrow down which community to contribute to?
  • what type of contributions can I make (e.g. what if I can't or don't want to code?)
  • how do I introduce myself and get started?
