Being a Good OSS Contributor


Comments are closed.

Very enjoyable talk! Loved it :)

Very insightful, refreshing and motivational. Really solid for being your first time giving the talk. I like that you touched on a ton of different ways people can contribute to open-source code, which aren't always the obvious ones like writing code. Everyone should feel like they can contribute something to their favorite project after listening to this. Also good insights into some of the development/contribution culture surrounding Symfony2. The clone pictures of Lukas, Stof, Ryan and Fabien were hilarious!

Really liked the examples at the end. Glad you touched on humility. That and listening/learning/joining the community are things I didn't really "get" when I first started trying to contribute to OSS projects and it went poorly. :) Could have used this talk several years ago!
