Every Wednesday at 10:45 PST we host the new contributors ensemble. This is a space for people who are keen to contribute to open source to get together and support each other in making their first contributions. πŸ¦„

The Cucumber team is committed to tackling the structural sexism and racism in open source, and we host these sessions to provide a welcoming environment for people who have historically been under-represented in open source. βœŠπŸΏπŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ³οΈβ€βš§οΈ

Sometimes, when people feel comfortable, we stream the session live over Twitch. You can watch it on https://twitch.tv/cucumberbdd or watch old sessions on our YouTube channel.

If you’re new to open source and feeling a bit nervous 😳, we understand! We recommend watching this excellent guide to give you a grounding in some of the basic concepts. We want you to feel safe to make mistakes, and ask questions.
