We are gutted that Scale by the Bay is over but of course, we are going to re-live every talk! We know that the Scala community is so successful because of the hard work from you all, every piece of work you do contributors to advancing Scala and this is what Senior Software Engineer, Seth Tisue's talk is all about. Seth discusses how to participate effectively in open-source work happening in the scala/* repositories on GitHub. While we wait for the video of the talk, have a read of his slides.
You Are A Scala Contributor
Scala is a community-based language. A few people at Lightbend and the Scala Center are paid to facilitate, but ultimately Scala succeeds or doesn't because of you. This talk is about how to participate effectively in open-source work happening in the scala/* repositories on GitHub. You'll learn the overall lay of the land as well as advice on contributing in specific areas such as websites and documentation, issue reporting, Scala modules, the Scala standard library, and even the Scala compiler.
