This is Nick Davies from Neighbourly's presentation which he gave during the 'Ignite: For Good' evening mySociety hosted on 29th October 2014 as part of the Bath Digital Festival. Description: 24 Pull Requests is an Open Source community project I started in 2012 as a way to encourage developers to contribute to Open Source software that they've used. Since then over 5,500 people have contributed over 7,000 patches to thousands of different projects, often from people just starting to learn to code.
