Contributing to Open Source projects like Ansible can be a daunting and perhaps scary endeavor. Even though most Open Source projects have getting started guides and tutorials, there are always those little bits that are missing. A missing bit might be the crucial element that makes the difference between you contributing or not. Books can help, podcasts are good, videos almost get you there, but nothing is better than a developer's step-by-step walk-though of their own personal Ansible contribution experience. This session will take you through how and why I contributed to Ansible and how you can. Arming you with what you need to know, things like Python, git, and YAML. Going over how to set up your development environment and contribute your code. Then wrapping up with what happens when you submit your contribution, how to avoid common mistakes, and your contribution becoming part of an Ansible release.
