Fullstack Open Source ⚡ Carbon Five
Pair Programming on Open Source projects Get ready to roll up your sleeves and dive into the open source code. All attendees are encouraged to build on and submit pull requests to open source projects. Whether it's your first foray into open source, or your you have been at it for years, we're here to provide tools and resources. All the coding is done in pairs, so you're never without someone to code with. Pair programing ( with new people is a great way to make new friends. Friends are welcome, but be ready to pair with new ones. While everyone is welcome, it is recommended that you have done some coding in the past. With coding, the first few steps can be the hardest. We are happy to assist everyone at all levels. The focus of this group is on open source contributions and getting folks past the first, tenth and hundredth pull request. If your looking to try coding for the first time I highly recommend you head on over to the Learn Teach Code Meetup group. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Schedule: • 6:30 - 7:00 - Social Time • 7:00 - 7:10 - Stand Up: Announcements, introductions & share what you're learning at the moment. • 7:10 - 8:20 - Pairing Round • 8:20 - 8:30 - Break • 8:30 - 9:00 - Code Review: If you're lucky, you and your pair will have your pull request reviewed by the group. • 9:00 - Go home! 👞 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bring: • A keyboard / mouse, and or a laptop 💻 🎹 • An open mind 💭💭💭 Install: • Atom ( We all love our very special development environments, however, pair programing is all about collaboration and it sucks when Vim gets in the way. If you're a seasoned open source committer ( (, we love you, come show us how it's done (we are a truly captive audience). If you have never pushed code to an open source project, you have come to the right place. We are here to help you find projects, identify issues, and understand the process of pull down, building, and pushing up new code. Code of Conduct: As always, anyone is welcome to attend our events.
