Join us in this talk by Matteo Collina about demystifying luck. “Lucky you! You are paid to work on Open Source Software!” Thanks, but that is not luck. I was lucky that my father put me in front of a Commodore64 when I was four. I was lucky when my application for an MBA got rejected… but I developed OSS libraries for two years before anyone noticed. Like most things in life, the truth is that there is absolutely no luck in becoming an OSS developer. You need dedication, will and grit, along with a strong desire for learning new things: from mastering version control to convincing others on your ideas. In this talk, we’re gonna talk about the importance to start contributing to Open Source Projects, and how to do it.
