Details

Open Source Study Night is specifically designed for people who would like to start contributing to open source, or have open source work that they'd like to do with others.

This month's theme: *Security and Open Source.* This month's study night will feature a presentation by Michaela "Miki" Demeter, Security Researcher at Intel!

When looking at open source packages, how do you decide what to incorporate and what to leave behind? Ultimately, your goal is to minimize your company and your teams' exposure to risk. “Minimizing risk” doesn't mean analyzing every line of code, but does involve evaluating a project's community. Can you trust them to do work at the quality that you can feel comfortable with in your releases? Are they doing proactive security work and fixing bugs quickly?

Miki has worked for the Open Source Technology Center at Intel for 5 years, and is an expert on open source communities. You'll walk away with a better understanding of how to choose open source libraries for your projects.

Come prepared with:
* Laptop/Computer
* IDE of your choice
* Git/GitHub or GitLab. If you don't know git, we'll teach you.
