Open Source Comes to Campus/UMD/Call for volunteers
Help students near DC make their first open source contribution
This weekend, in College Park, there's a free-of-cost workshop to teach college students how to contribute to open source, and to give them a hands-on opportunity to submit their first patch.
Can you help?
We're looking for volunteers to, on Sunday 2/26, be an in-person mentor for students' first contributions.
Attendees will be looking for good open source projects to contribute to. If you have a project that you can be a mentor for, come by and see if students want to help out! Either way, you can help by being a helpful person to solve things like compile problems.
If you're interested, get in touch! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or join us at #openhatch on irc.freenode.net
