This will be a hands-on session with the first 30 minutes being walk walkdown about the data orchestrator Apache Airflow, its parts, the community and where to go and seek help, how help can be asked effectively in an Open source community, and place to look for the first time contributors. With that said, we will try hands-on in setting up the development environment in your instance. Picking up the first-time contributors tags from the issue list and making contributions. This will have also introduction about using the git version control tool for making contribution to huge projects in Open-source.

The goal of this devsprint is to give a glimpse of how contributing to an open-source project will look like and give directions on further contribution.
