1. What you will do

If you complete this class, you will gain a basic understanding of how to submit an open-source software patch on github.com, the leading code-management site.

You will explore a code repository, make edits to the source and then propose your changes be included in the original project. This pattern, known as a pull request, is fundamental to the process that allows developers around the world to collaborate.


As part of the practice, you will make a real contribution to moneyinpolitics.wtf, the in-progress, crowdsourced effort to create America’s most comprehensive dictionary of campaign finance jargon.
