What’s it really like being an Open Source Software Developer?!
This is a question I have been asked many, many times. I’ve tried many different ways to try to explain it, and in the end the best way to answer that question is to share my ups and downs in becoming an Open Source Developer. (It’s not as scary as you think.)
Being a productive member of OSS is much more than writing code. (The code, is the easy part!) This talk will cover many aspects of not only what it takes to be productive, but even more importantly happy.
We'll talk about what OSS is, how and why to get involved, as well as how community plays a large part in the success of OSS. (You know, everyone can see your code, right?) By the time the talk is ended I hope to have empowered anyone regardless of their experience to give it a try, and join the OSS movement!
