Ich weiß, was wir letzten Sommer gemacht haben…
… nämlich gemeinsam Beiträge für offene Softwareprojekten geleistet. Hier der Appetizer für die nächste Sommeruni. Kommt, macht mit! Macht Spaß und schlau!
lgtm (LGTM) = „looks good to me“ = appreciating comment on contribution
1+ is also an appreciating comment on contribution
GitHub has a lot of beginner friendly issues
GitHub can be used via web, too (not recommended for coding issues)
each project has a project lead = Big Picture Person
Important: Check community; some projects are not too friendly with women (in a sometimes more, some less subtle way)
Searching for a project and issues you can take may take some time, at the beginning it may be frustrating, just hang on then!
First „pull request“: Add a short information that you’re new and may help at the beginning; it may help to give some information about your knowledge and experiences here
Naming: Give your contribution / your fork (branch) a significant name, e. g. „typofix“
add short description to clarify if necessary
[WIP] = work in progress (if it takes longer, as it happens all too often…)
Markdown is the markup language which is used, e. g. # is the mark for a headline and ## is the mark for a 2nd level headline. The filename extension is .md or .marksown. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown for more.

- CouchDB is Open Source Software (no-SQL database)
- Open Street Map is Open Source (no source code, but a lot of projets around it)
- Rails Girls Summer of Code: https://railsgirlssummerofcode.org
- participate (fulltime job), and application for a (real) job will be not too hard as you can prove you can code AND work (in a team)
