Getting Started in Open Source – Video

Recently OSS Watch were invited to produce a video for an online course discussing how to get involved in open source software projects.  In the video, we discuss why you’d want to contribute to open source projects, how to choose the right open source project for you, the communication channels used by open source communities, how to make your first contributions and what you can contribute other than code, as well as sharing a little of our own experiences contributing to open source projects.
