The talk is great, but the title/description could be more explicit. I was expecting a talk more focused on open source projects and the nature of the open source community. Rather, this presentation seems primarily a Git and Github tutorial with exercises which is not as beneficial for someone who's pretty comfortable with Git and Github already.

Excellent talk! It was pitched more toward introductory Git/Github usage than I expected, which for me personally suited just fine as I haven't used git in several years and needed the refresher.

Beth's encouragement and pointers towards good places to start is great for me - having had some really unpleasant experiences with overly hostile and combative open source communities many years ago, I haven't wanted to jump back in to that den of vipers.

It was a great talk. It is more was geared towards git than open source development. I was expecting more like hands on existing opensource fork it and fix a issue and submit an PR.
