Presented by Scott Hanselman & Keeley Hammond for Women Who Code Portland.
Contributing to open source for the first time can be scary and a little overwhelming. In addition to the technical skills required, the social dynamics of contributing to a library and participating in a code review can seem strange.
In this workshop, we talk about the work and details that go into maintaining an open source community, tell real stories from his experiences and go over what to expect when contributing to open source and how to navigate it.
- Understanding the work that open source maintainers do, and how to show respect for them.
- Understanding Codes of Conduct and Style Guides for OSS repos and how to abide by them.
- Tips for communicating clearly, and dealing with uncomfortable or hostile communication.
