Different kinds of programming require different kinds of skills. Steve has worked on a number of projects over the years, being one of the most active contributors on GitHub, and will give a talk about his experiences working on three kinds of projects: applications, libraries, and languages. He'll discuss the unique challenges of each kind, which might make sense for you to contribute to, and war stories from being on too many core teams.
