Emma Burstow

Your journey into Open Source

At every festival, meetup and in a myriad of blog posts, we are reminded as Umbracians that our contributions are needed. Before I made my first pull request, I doubted I had anything really to offer. It was with help and structured support that I discovered my contributions were not just wanted, they were invaluable. 

Timed especially for the global Hacktoberfest event, this session I will provide support to people who find themselves wondering if they have anything to offer and where to begin. I will begin by showing them how to use the tools they’ll need to begin; including github, a git client, an IDE and more. We’ll look closely at the art of choosing an issue from the issue tracker, the conventions they’ll need to follow when submitting that pull request, the common pitfalls associated with getting the codebase up and running, the need for the careful documentation of that work and much much more. 

The workshop will take a hands-on approach full of practical advice and actual tuition that will empower attendees to continue to contribute throughout their careers. Attendees can go on to attend Hackathons with confidence and build themselves a personal portfolio of work on github.
