Contribution Sessions to Begin Tomorrow

The openSUSE community is pleased to announce that it will have short sessions aimed at encouraging people on how to contribute to the project.

A group of volunteers will present short 15-minute sessions that are streamed and/or recorded on openSUSE’s YouTube channel that are aimed at teaching people about packaging, using the Open Build Service, creating tests for openQA and other development areas.

The first session about “Basic use of OBS/osc using a version bump as an example” is set to begin tomorrow, on Feb. 15 at 21:00 UTC.

Update: The “Packaging Guidelines (Patch Policies) and Submission of New Packages” session scheduled for Feb. 27 at 16:00 UTC has been postponed.

More sessions are expected to be scheduled for future dates.

The sessions are listed on the openSUSE Calendar; look for the Contribution Workshop sessions marked in orange.

Those who are interested in presenting should fill in the blank area for future sessions listed in the email about the events.

Giving a session is a great way to give back to the community and provides opportunities to teach others skills and knowledge about open-source development.
