About an year ago I started a new initiative mentoring computer science students from different universities. After some time I started to distinguish a certain pattern in their most often questions like “How can I get a real life programming experience?”, “What is the best way to learn new technologies?”, “How can I improve my communication and collaboration skills?” and then I caught myself giving one and the same answer: ”See if you can join an Open Source community and contribute to one of the projects!”

In this workshop session I would like to open a discussion about best practices and the steps to join a new Open Source project in order to make a meaningful contribution.
To discuss the career advantages and the pure joy of doing something to help others.
