Getting Started in Open Source
— Swearingen Engineering Center, room 2A17
This week's talk will be on how to contribute to open source:
- finding a project
- deciding what to work on
- communicating with the maintainers
- making your first pull request (PR)
I'll use real PR's I've made to projects as examples of what and what not to do. There will be a discussion of how to use common open-source tools like git, markdown, continuous integration (CI) providers, and unit tests as they pertain to contributing to a project.
If time permits, I can help attendees find projects they'd be interested in contributing to.
Note: This talk was originally planned for the 6th, but was postponed due to bad weather.
The slides for this talk are available here.
