Are you new to open source? Maybe been using it for a long time and never got around to contributing to it? Wondering how to get started?

In this episode, you'll meet Anthony Shaw, Dan Bader, and Ronald Maravanyika. All of these guys have been successful open source developers. I speak with them about how to find a welcoming project and what you need to know to get started.

We also cover what open source project maintainers can do to help attract new and experienced contributors.
