In most open-source projects, often left unsaid is how to effectively contribute within the accepted “societal norms” of a project. Contributions can take a wide range of forms: adding new features, bug fixes, documentation, and often just general feedback. In this session, we will review how an individual developer can contribute constructively to an open source project – with a specific eye on helping you contribute to projects from The Apache Software Foundation.Topics covered:
Justin R. Erenkrantz is currently President of The Apache Software Foundation. He is also a Senior Software Engineer at Joost and is completing his PhD at the University of California, Irvine. He has been a long-time contributor to the Apache HTTP Server, Subversion, APR, Serf, mod_mbox, and flood.
