So you found an open source project that you want to help out with. It could be your favourite app, or some tool you just happen to use a lot. You excitedly decide to contribute code to that project, but you don't know where to start. If you've been in this situation or just curious about open source code contribution, you're in luck! This talk will introduce you to an alternative way to spend your time... on Valentine's Day... if you're single, and will be discussing a brief overview of what open source, the innards of code contribution, and how to get your foot into contributing code to open source.
