Recently I was in discussion with some enthusiastic students and many of them were keen to know how to contrinute to large opensource projects. These people are self-learners, already contribute couple of small opensource projects, some of them did GSoC and have built resonably complex applications themselves.
I thought it may be a good idea to run a series of sessions inviting the people who are already contributing to large opensource projects like Linux kernel, Python, postgres, prometheus etc. to give a talk about their journey and interact with the students.
I’ve asked @Devdutt, one of the students who initiated that discussion, to take the initiative to run these sessions, taking care of all the logistics of hosting, recording and outreach along with other vounteers and he happily agreed.
I would like to hear inputs and comments from everyone before moving foward.
