How to engage developers to contribute effectively to Debian and other open source projects in Asia
Speaker: Eden Dang
Track: Social context
Type: Short talk (20 minutes)
When I first learned about Free & Open Source at FOSSASIA Summit in 2009, I didn’t understand how contributions work within this community. Throughout the years, I got to learn that it takes certain time and efforts until a developer can find himself actively and effectively contribute to an open source project.
In this talk, I will explore the factors that affect their contributions, including:
- Culture and Communication
- Communication Channels
- Private and Public Chat or Issue Tracker
- Feature Requests and Bug Reports
- Join Development
- Commits/Pull Requests
- Scope of Issues and Commits
- Getting Started
These ideas and practices can be applied within the Debian project as well as any other free & open source projects in our community.
