How documentation and open communication leads to better collaboration permalink

Ladies of Code (London) / Remote / August 17th, 2020 / Video / Slides / lightning talk

It's a known issue that developers often not prioritize documentation at work. Documentation and open communication are often related and critical in an open-source project environment. By the end of this talk audience members will be enlightened about how accessible documentation and open communication leads to a more productive, autonomous, and inclusive team. Also how we can apply these concepts at work having in mind open-source environment context.

I shared the process of getting prepared to apply and then how the actual program was after being accepted. I also showed how I contributed to Systers Open Source community with more than code, because Open Source is not just about code and has a place for everyone.

From contributing to Open Source, as a contributor, I had to work on projects I didn’t know much about, as a maintainer I had to make sure the project was ready and for other contributors.
