Adam Farley is a developer in the OpenJDK team at IBM. He works with Java code stored in GIT repositories, and builds said code in custom Docker containers.
This talk covers the mistakes I made and/or saw while attempting to contribute to OpenJDK, along with some advice OpenJDK community members have given me. Examples include:
- "Proposing Large, Sweeping Changes as a Newbie"
- "Expecting the Community to Write All the Code"
- "Insulting The People Who Are Trying To Help You."
- "Deploying Bots in Community Mailing Lists and IRC Channels."
