In this session, you will learn the importance of joining and giving back to a community. We will discuss the different roles within an Open Source Community and why they are all important and most importantly how everyone's work is important and has value.

We will start with the different roles within a community touching on developers, technical writers, graphic artists, operators, and community advocates. We will discuss how these roles all come together to make up a community and how they work together to maintain one. We will also discuss how members of a community can work together to help grow the community through onboarding new members, mentoring, and also providing feedback to help improve both the project's output and the project itself.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees should leave with a realization that what they do matters as well as how they help improve and growth their community as well.
