I find myself coming back again and again to this blog post by Scott Hanselman on the importance of kindness in open source communities, and the experiences and attitudes that prevent contributors from joining a project:
The Community Health Toolkit is fortunate to have one of the most patient and dedicated communities I’ve encountered, but I’m curious about ways we can foster an even more inviting and safe spaces for new contributors.
I’d love your thoughts; have you contributed to another open source project before? What was your experience like? And if you’ve contributed to the CHT or Medic Mobile, what could we improve or stream line?
