London Scala Open Source Saturday
Join us for a virtual London Scala Open Source Saturday!
Come and meet up with fellow contributors and maintainers to hack on their projects. You can support the Scala ecosystem by contributing to a variety of open source projects:
- Probably with Jon Pretty
- The Typelevel ecosystem with Lars Hupel
- ZIO projects with Adam Fraser
- The LSUG website with Zainab Ali
- more projects to be announced!
First time contributors are especially welcome to help improve to the brand new LSUG website, written in ScalaJS. Whether you're new to GitHub or Scala, we'll help you get your first taste of open source.
14:00 — Doors open
Gather together for a casual chat on Spatial Chat at https://spatial.chat/s/londonscala . Catch up with your fellow OSS enthusiasts.
14:15 — Project briefings
Maintainers will briefly explain projects, motivations and good first issues.
You can then choose an issue you wish to tackle, and speak to the maintainer for more guidance. If you're experience lines up and you're keen on the project, the hacking begins!
14:30 — Round 1
We'll split up into groups around each project and start hacking!
You'll start coding your solution, teaming up with others if you wish to. Experienced contributors will be on hand to pair with you, and where possible maintainers will review your PRs as they come. Let's try and merge as many PRs as possible!
15:45 — Break
Have a break and sync up with other contributors in the Spatial Chat hallway.
16:15 — Round 2
When ready, we'll move back to the breakout rooms for a last round of hacking.
17:15 — Closing discussion
Move back to the Spatial Chat hallway to discuss what we've achieved
