How to ask Good Questions in Open Source Communities

Better questions leads to better answers, saves time and makes you more productive

Good questions lead to better answers.

Asking good questions is a must have skill for software developers, especially if you are involved in open source projects. The problem with poor questions is clear when the person answering starts explaining what you already know or what you think isn't relevant. Or they might go ahead and assume that you know a lot and you end up being confused.

In this talk, Navendu walks through his experience as an open source contributor and a maintainer and how he was able to improve this skill and how it has benefitted him.

This quick session is for junior and senior developers alike and offers real examples and takeaways that you can start implementing right away.
