I recently had reason to submit a one-character documentation fix to Ruby. I know submitting a patch to a high-profile project can feel intimidating, so I recorded the process to show just how straightforward it is.
May I write to you? Every week or so you'll get a SIGAVDI newsletter with a few handpicked links to interesting articles, talks, or resources; an update on what I've published lately; and some reflections at the intersection of software and life. Replies go directly to me, and I try to respond to every single one (eventually!)
