As adoption of Open Source code and development practices continues to gain momentum, more newcomers have become interested in getting involved and contributing to Open Source. However, it's usually not easy for newcomers to start contributing to open source projects. This session will discuss how mentoring programs can ease the way for newcomers to get started with open source, and will provide an overview of existing mentoring programs such as Google Summer of Code and our in-house Apache Mentoring Programme.
