Contributing to a large open source project can seem daunting at first; but fear not! You too can join thousands of successful contributors. First, you don't have to be an expert in Golang, Python, or C, to contribute to Docker, OpenStack, or the Linux Kernel. Many projects also need help with documentation, translation, testing, triaging issues, and more. Very often, just going through bug reports to reproduce them and confirm "this also happens on my setup, with version XYZ" is extremely helpful.
If you decide to take the leap and propose a change (be it code or documentation), each open source project has different contribution guidelines and workflows.
In this talk, Arnaud and Jérôme will explain some of those workflows, how maintainers review your patches, and highlight the details that make your changes more likely to be merged into the project.
