The Journey in Open Source Community without Programming

The Journey in Open Source Community without Programming

This is a talk in COSCUP 2022, Open Source & Career track.

I will give a brief overview of how I first became involved in the open source community, what it's like to make contributions to the community as someone who is not a programmer, and whether or not my employer encourages such activities and how it's helped my career. And finally, what I've learned as a long-term community volunteer.
