Open Source - Contributing - drop-in session

Union St, 18-20 Union Street, S1 2JP
10am to 12pm, 1pm to 3pm

Extra event Open Source - Contributing - drop-in session

Sean and Greg work on two amazing open source projects, GitLab and Foreman, respectively and are perfectly placed to help you either make your first contributions to the projects or talk about your git workflow/CI and anything DevOps/Config Management/CI/Community related.

We welcome both seasoned and unseasoned OpenSource enthusiasts for one or 2 of the sessions (we will break at 12pm for an hours lunch)

About our speakers

Greg Sutcliffe has been a sysadmin, DBA, developer, and is now the community manager for an open-source Rails system management project The Foreman. He’s been working from home for Red Hat for over four years and may have gone slightly crazy in the process…

Sean McGivern works on GitLab’s discussion tools, from creating an issue to reviewing the code to fix it. Before this he worked on cloud computing software, and before that he was a much younger person.
