Webinar: “Onboarding Contributors with Code With Me, GitHub, and Tasks in JetBrains IDEs” with Steve Piercy

Let’s start 2021 with a fun one. How can tools help projects get contributors up to speed? In this webinar, Steve Piercy, a long-time maintainer with a popular open source project, shows us how he uses Code With Me for collaboration, as well as GitHub Pull Request and Tasks tools, to guide a contribution to the project’s documentation.

While this webinar will use PyCharm as the IDE, and will have a little bit of Python, it is intended to be general to all JetBrains IDEs. As such, onboarding a contribution of documentation is the scenario used.
