Details

Mark Shropshire and Bayo Fodeke from Mediacurrent and the CharDUG Meetup group are gracing as with their presence. Let's have a warm welcome for this special occasion.

Open source is more than free software. Contributing to open source is more than contributing code. In this presentation, Bayo Fodeke and Mark Shropshire will discuss what open source is all about and how to specifically give back to the Drupal community. If you are curious about how you can get involved in open source and the benefits for you, don’t miss this presentation.

Topics covered:
* What’s This Open Source Thing?
* Do I have to be a developer to contribute?
* Ways to Contribute
* Contributing on drupal.org specifically
* A healthy approach for contributing to open source

We will have pizza and participants are welcome to bring beverages of their own. We'll have some social time and then dive into the presentation. The American Underground @ Main in the center of downtown Durham is our home base.
