The Topic

Tom Augspurger, a maintainer of pandas and dask, will walk through how to get started in open source. We’ll talk about why you might want to contribute to open source and how to find a project to contribute to. Most of the time will be spent walking through the entire process of fixing a small bug in pandas.
