Andrew Nesbitt

Creator, 24 Pull Requests

Andrew is a freelance software developer, based in Bath, England. He spends most of his days programming in Ruby, playing with JavaScript, contributing to open source projects and organising local developer user groups.

Description

It was just a static webpage, telling you to get in the holiday spirit by making open source contributions. But 24 Pull Requests soon became its own open source project, with people adding features to make it fun and easy to make those contributions. We talk to creator Andrew Nestbitt about how code newbies can get started in making open source contributions, why getting involved in open source is a great idea, and how to get over the intimidation you might feel at the prospect of making your first pull request.
