How To Make a Positive Impact In Open Source Without Doing Any Coding - Nithya Ruff, SanDisk

Many people want to make a difference but believe that they need to be a coder or a developer to make a difference in open source projects and communities. However, there are many roles in open source that need someone who supports and believes in collaborative development to create change. I will cover some of these areas and show how you can get involved and make a difference and create an impact.

These roles have allowed me to move open source understanding and engagement forward in a positive way without coding.
