Andy Lester will give a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 described as:
We all love open source software, but to many it seems you have to be
a rock star programmer to contribute to your favorite projects. In
reality, most projects are easy to join, if you know where to look.
In this presentation, Iâll deal with the common questions and
problems of those looking to help out on projects:
* âI wouldnât know where to start!â
* âWhatâs a good project to start on?â
* âHow good a programmer do I have to be?âÂ
* âIâm just a nobody, they wonât be able to use me.â
* âThey probably have enough people already.â
Youâll learn about different ways people of all experience levels
can pitch in. From coding and documentation to devops and project
management to publicity and community, thereâs a place for everyone
in the open source ecosystem.
If youâve never had the joy of improving the software you use every
day, seeing your work published for the world to see and use, this is
the session for you.
