Curious about Free & Open Source Software (FOSS)? Wondering how you can contribute to FOSS, specifically the Django project (http://www.djangoproject.com)?

Do you plan on coming to the PyLadies + Django Community sprint (http://www.meetup.com/PyLadiesSF/events/73639302/) on Saturday, August 4th? (yea, you do!)

Come learn how to give back to the Open Source community from FOSS pros!

Join Alex Gaynor, Karen Rustad, and Jeremy Dunck as they discuss their experiences in contributing to open source, contributing to the Django project, and how we can contribute to Django by sprinting on the tutorial!

Alex (http://alexgaynor.net/about/) is large contributor to FOSS, and one of the few core developers/committers to the Django project.

Karen (http://littlegreenriver.com/about-me/index.html) previously worked with OpenHatch (http://openhatch.org), and gave a great talk at PyCon 2012 on how Django can improve its tutorial (http://pyvideo.org/video/713/improving-documentation-with-beginners-mind-o).

Jeremy (https://people.djangoproject.com/jdunck/) is currently the secretary for the Django Software Foundation, and works with Django full time at Votizen. (https://www.votizen.com/Jeremy-Dunck/)
