How to contribute to an open source project (a tutorial)

TEK Systems 700 N. Hurstbourne Pkwy The 700 Room , Louisville, KY (map)

You've probably been there:

You'd love to work on an enhancement or bug fix for your favorite open source project, but, somehow that Github "pull request" process seemed a little off-putting.

Tonight Jeff Squyres will give us a soup-to-nuts tutorial / demonstration of how to submit a pull request on The goal here is to enable everyone to know how to make a pull request (so that they can submit 5 pull requests in October to qualify for a free Hactoberfest t-shirt!).

Come and join us! We usually have between 15 and 25 Linux users, admins, and programmers show up. Good conversation and networking and, often, a great presentation or two.

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month. If we don't have an announced program, feel free to come with a discussion topic or a presentation to make to us! (Or just come and join the conversation!)
