In this talk I plan to describe my first impression from working on
open source project, how the community is organized and what can be gained by contributing to open source community. As a supporting fact of positive outcome from participating in similar projects, I will provide an example from my personal experience. It demonstrates how anyone can dive into open source development and work on project of choice. I introduce my work on virtual NUMA within XenProject and OPW program. It will demonstrate the challenges that newbie will face diving into mature development product and process, the necessity of discipline, commitment and self-organization. I will show what I had to learn in order to move forward, what I had to focus on and how to progress. The work what was done at this moment would not be possible without help of project mentors, source code knowledge, learning how to extract information from patches and ask right questions. I hope this example will bring more passionate developers into the community of open source software and hacking.
