GNOME newcomers workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The workshop will start with an overview of the GNOME community structure, collaboration practices, and ways to start contributing. After that, established GNOME contributors will help participants work their way through the newcomers tutorial which teaches the process and the tools for downloading the code for a GNOME module, testing the module locally, submitting a bug report, and providing a fix for a bug. This workshop is suitable for complete newcomers to GNU/Linux, as virtual machine images with Fedora 20 will be available for people with other systems.
