[SLIDES]Amye Scavarda @amye - Open Source Contribution - How does it even work?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
An open source community lead walks through contribution to open source projects from a number of angles:
* the community side and why they want contributions
* the corporate side and they want contributions
* who contributes and why
* numbered lists about why contribution matters to projects
* a real life example of contribution with a side of open source licensing and how that effects contributions
* how projects change to affect and improve contribution
* inviting diverse contribution as part of contributor growth
* where the state of project contribution can go from here

This is by no means an exhaustive list and may include more memes and gifs as time allows. Audience participation welcomed.
Audience members will get a wider understanding of how and why corporations contribute to open source projects, how communities can improve their contributor growth and new pathways to increase contribution.
