Workshop 1

Welcome to Open Source 101! This session gives the big picture overview of what open source is and how you can get started. Learn what it means when we talk about free and open source software and where this movement began, over 30 years ago. After understanding the philosophy, get practical advice on how to choose a project and community to contribute to. You won’t believe the two things nobody ever told you about choosing a project! At the end, we’ll look at the Fedora Project community as an example and explain how you can begin contributing to an open source community today.
