Getting Started in an Open Source Community

in Community, SC2010, Misc
Speaker: 
Dru Lavigne
Event: 
Summercamp2010
Abstract: 

This presentation will be of interest to those who have never been active within an open source project or have been lurking instead of contributing. It will discuss the following:

- why would I want to contribute?
- how do I narrow down which community to contribute to?
- what type of contributions can I make (e.g. what if I can't or don't want to code?)
- how do I introduce myself and get started?
