Free and open source software is the default choice for the technologies that run our world, and it’s built and maintained by people like you. No matter your skill level or area of expertise, you can contribute to free and open source software projects. Using this practical approach you’ll not only learn how to contribute, but also help your career and the community.
This book doesn’t assume that you’re a programmer, or that you have prior experience with free and open source software. Discover the fundamental tenets that drive the movement. Take control of your contribution by selecting the right project to meet your goals. Master the language and avoid the pitfalls that ensnare new contributors. Find out what to do when things don’t go well. Join a community of like-minded people and change the world.
Anyone can contribute! Make your mark today and help others while also helping yourself.
"Wonderfully readable, not only as a practical manual, but as an engaging and inspirational introduction to the world of free software, one practical and people-oriented example at a time. This is the book I wish I had read many years ago."
Chris Lamb, Debian Project Leader
