Mentorship Session: How Do I Get Started with an Open Source Project?

How Do I Get Started with an Open Source Project?
December 2 | 10:30 am – 12:00 pm PST

Join us for: How Do I Get Started with an Open Source Project?, with Clyde Seepersad, SVP and GM, Training and Certification, The Linux Foundation.

Open source projects can be like Rapunzel’s tower, you can see where you want to get to but there’s no obvious door through which to start your journey. This session will cover some of the different tools available to a new user to both get started and find support along the journey. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each and consider when each might be most helpful. Since each user is unique we’ll leave lots of time for questions and discussion.

The session will begin with an overview by Clyde (45 minutes) and will be followed by Q&A – an opportunity to both ask questions and for group discussion (45 minutes).

Join us for a complimentary live mentoring session!
