What we're about

What is Open Source Software? OSS powers much of the world's IT, and works as a give and take ecosystem where developers work on community projects for each other, for free. The end result is often, perhaps surprisingly, well-written and reviewed software.

Are you interested in contributing to Open Source? Do you want to work with other interested and passionate developers?

Whether you are a senior software engineer, just want to learn how to write better code, or just get started with coding, open source offers something to everyone.

Open Source Workshop

Impact Hub Zürich - Colab

For the meeting, you'll want to prepare with the following: 1. [Optional] Choose a software project that you'd like to contribute to in advance, or create a new project. This will help maximize your time. 2. Bring a laptop that is able to run a decent IDE. If you have an older laptop, it is possible to also virtualize your coding remotely if you need it. Please contact me privately if this something you need setup On arrival, just follow the signs. Note!! If the doors have been shut, ring[masked] and you'll be buzzed in. What Programming Languages are used? -> This is up to you and depends on the project you want to contribute to. Each language has different use cases Do I need to be an expert programmer? -> Not at all! In fact the earlier you start, the more you're likely to benefit from contributing. Open source is a great way to become a better programmer. What projects should I contribute to? -> Up to you. There's a lot of problems that can be solved with software. If you need inspiration, there are several links below that you can explore to find the right project for yourself. Or, start your own!
