People and Communications


Ruth Ikegah


This talk aims to share my experience, challenges, contributions with contributing to the Scalable Onboarding project, Extensions Rebooted Initiative, and volunteering for Guadec 2020. Over time I have noticed that non-code contributions are not usually appreciated so much so asides from hearing my story, it will be a call-to-action for attendees to appreciate non-code contributors. For first-time contributors that will attend my talk, it will help them understand how to contribute via some tips I will share from my experience in the past year.
