So much of the tools, libraries, and frameworks we use today are open source, and many of them are looking for people just like you to help contribute. And contributions to open source software open the door for you in many ways, from making new lifelong friends to bringing in more income for you and your family.
In this talk we'll look at what open source software is, how different communities work, and how you can get started right now. And you'll see how easy it is to give back to the software community.
