Dip Your Toe In Open (Source) Waters

One of the qualities that TIM Group look for when filling vacancies is an interest in contributing to open source projects. We think that when a candidate gets involved in open source, it indicates a passion for software development. If you’re like me, at some point, you have wanted to join a project. Perhaps you wanted to improve your skills, try a different technology, or brighten up your CV. But alas, you didn’t know the best way to get started.

I am trying to provide that exact opportunity, in conjunction with RecWorks’ “Meet-A-Project” scheme. I have an open source project, called Mutability Detector, with issues and features waiting to be completed, specifically earmarked for newcomers to the project. I promise a helpful, friendly environment, in which to dip your toe in open (source) waters.

If you want to know more details, head over to the project blog for a description on the how and why of getting involved.
