Improving Onboarding in FOSS

Open-source software is code that is designed to be publicly accessible. Open source has core principles that make it rely on collaboration between contributors and companies in order to achieve a common goal. To attain more collaborations, onboarding in most open source communities should be considered a priority. Oftentimes, beginners who are new to open source projects develop cold feet a short while after joining a community because they are not properly onboarded into the community. Onboarding plays a major role in the performance of and productivity of contributors. In this session, I would like to talk on: - What is quality onboarding? - Effects of poor Onboarding in a community -The need for improved onboarding - How onboarding can be improved? - Impact of quality onboarding
