Open Source Comes to Campus: CCSF

This workshop is running Sat, June 29.

Audience: anyone interested in getting started contributing to open source projects (in any capacity, including code, documentation, artwork, translations, and more). Additionally, the tools and skills we'll cover are universally useful and aren't typically taught in school, so anyone with an interest in the material is welcome to sign up and attend!
