Learning from @email@example.com's first open source contribution experience:
✅ Look for a project you're familiar with an active community
✅ Code on the forked repo (not cloned)
✅ Write tests if applicable
✅ Scope your changes
✅ Be patient when waiting for a response
From @AmrutaRanade@twitter.com's Contributing docs to Open Source from Day 2 of #WSC2019Conf, she encourages everyone to participate in events that promote open source contributions, including:
"If you have white privilege and you aren't willing to risk anything, you're not doing the work. Privilege is about access. You may not realize you have privilege when you have always had access. Prioritize the most vulnerable." - @KimCrayton1@twitter.com, keynote speaker of #WSC2019Conf
