TOPIC: The 5W1H of Getting Involved in Open Source
SPEAKER: Paul Ramirez
Open source is vital towards our future in technology development and is being promoted across government institutions and within the private sector. In this talk he will cover the who, what, where, why, and how’s of open source based on his life experience. This talk will seek to inform and recruit the audience to engage and contribute in open source by providing answers to the simple questions. Together we will discuss lowering the barrier to entry into the open source world. And if you’re already contributing to open source then we will share life experiences and camaraderie and plans to infect more people with the open source bug.
