Getting started as an open source contributor
How to start with open source or helping others to start
Ana started at openSUSE as a Google Summer of Code student. She studied Computer Science Engineering and Mathematics at university and just after finishing she started working at SUSE in the OBS frontend team.
She can not avoid taking a look to every code that crosses her path, that's why she contributes to several open source projects inside and outside openSUSE.
When she is not hacking you may find her painting, cooking or learning some German.
Are you new to the open source community? or do you already have experience and you would like to help other to start? then this talk is for you!
Some examples of ideal projects to start contributing to, both inside and outside openSUSE, will be presented in the talk, as well as the steps to do so. In this line, I will also speak about mentoring programs, focusing on GSoC (Google Summer of Code), in which openSUSE participates and in which I personally have participated as a student last year and also as a mentor this year. I will explain what this program is about and why it is important for openSUSE. I will show projects from last years and for everybody interested in participating I will cover who can apply and how to do so. And for those with more experience, I will also talk about how to become a mentor for openSUSE.
