Learn the Basics of Open Source Contribution!


Have you ever wanted to contribute to open source but didn't know where to start?

Come to this workshop and you will learn:

  • How to find an open source project
  • How to select a good first issue
  • How to submit your first PR using Git

You will have a chance to meet maintainers of open source projects in the following languages: iOS/Swift, Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and possibly others.

The maintainers will be available to assign issues for those interested, which means you will walk away from the workshop starting your first open source issue!

You will have the option to continue working on your issue on your own, after the workshop is over.

Light food and beverages will be provided!

📣 IMPORTANT: To ensure the most success with the workshop, please make sure to do the following in advance: 1) Create an account on Github and 2) Join the Women Who Code Colorado Slack group (

We will create a special channel just for this workshop on the day of, so you'll want to already be in the Slack group in time for the workshop.
