Sign in to queue

Description

Making that first pull request to an open source project can be a scary and daunting thing, even for a seasoned developer. “What if people laugh at my code? What if I break something? What if I didn’t squash my commit correctly?” Learning the ropes can be challenging, not just the technical but also the social aspects. In this session, Scott Hanselman demystifies the magic of open source development and gives you practical advice on how to get started and get along with open source communities.

    Funny to be mentioned on the site. :) 

    As a word of encouragement, thanks to initiatives like these, I've been able to contribute to OSS projects, because of better guidance by the project maintainers. Thanks for helping to make the community more friendly, Scott!
