In order to get hired for a data role, you need to be able to demonstrate your skills. One way to do this is to have publicly accessible examples of your work, that is, a portfolio.

Making contributions to open source software projects lets you create a portfolio based on real projects rather than toy examples, as well as contributing to software that helps others.

In this session, you'll learn how to get started contributing to open source software projects, and how to make use of these contributions when you are trying to get hired or promoted.
