About the author

I've been a MRI committer since last Fall, and contributor to Sinatra, Shoes, and a few other projects for a few years.

This will be my time in Europe, and I'm very excited to see Greece!

⚡ Contributing to Ruby ⚡

Newcomer or seasoned veteran looking to get involved with Ruby documentation?

The path to eternal gratification can seem like a scary one, but we'll show you it's alot easier than you thought. Writing documentation is a great way to give back to the open source community and build your Ruby skills and fundamentals.

This talk will teach you the value of open-source, the benefits of contributing, and a little bit about how ruby-core works. You will learn what to look for when spotting documentation bugs in the MRI source code. We will cover the guidelines to writing MRI documentation, and how to submit a patch.

    @Nikos Alrighty! I wouldn't mind giving a full 30 minute talk on this in any case, so I'll leave the proposal up.

    FYI we are going to have a separate section for lightning talks after the main lineup/schedule is ready.

    This is meant to be a Lightning talk, I've given a full 45 minute presentation on it before, but I think I can get across all the major talking points in a few minutes.
