281801 - Giving Back to Upstream: An Open Source Beginner's Primer

Session Speakers
Session Description

So you really want to contribute to open source? Varying opinions about open source, foundations, governance models, and licensing are proclaimed across our industry's news feeds regularly. But the fact of the matter is, open source is everywhere and the broad ecosystem benefits of giving back through open source contribution is hard to argue against! If you haven't ever contributed to open source or don't even have a GitHub ID, this talk is your kickstarter to get out there and share what you have with an open source community! This talk will cover everything from the basics of getting started with tools like git and GitHub to what to expect when working with various upstream communities. Open source community participation can have its share of bumps and bruises, but it can be extremely rewarding as well. Your involvement could be the spark that a particular community needs to be more open and welcoming. We'll talk about the practical aspects of dealing with remote communities, misunderstandings in online communication, and how best to work with community maintainers. Best of all, you'll walk away with the information you need and hopefully the confidence to enter the open source world and make a difference with your contributions!
