But this is such a huge Open-Source project, where to start?, "Oh, I am from a non-coding background, Open-Source is not for me", "I am fixing a typo, is this even an Open-Source Contribution?" Okay, okay - if you have any such questions in your mind and if Open-Source feels daunting to you - you are not alone. This talk aims to allay all your fears and doubts related to Open-Source. Whatever skills you have - Open-Source is open for you and this talk will help you learn how you can make your first move with any of them. From fixing a typo to designing a logo or writing a blog post, asking a question in the community, or maybe simply hosting a local-community meetup related to even a huge open-source project like Kubernetes or Helm - Open Source has a lot of doors for you to enter and this talk aims to knock a lot of them for you! This talk will make you more confident in open-source and help you understand the value of your contributions to the open-source communities.
