RailsConf talk description:

Breaking Down the Barrier: Demystifying Contributing to Rails

Contributing to Rails for the first time can be terrifying. In this lab I’ll make contributing to Rails more approachable by going over the contributing guidelines and technical details you need to know. We’ll walk through traversing the source code with tools such as CTags, source_location and TracePoint. Additionally, we’ll create reproduction scripts for reporting issues and learn advanced git commands like bisect and squash. At the end of this session you’ll have the confidence to fix bugs and add features to Ruby on Rails.

Executable Scripts

In this repo there are Active Record executable scripts and a couple Ruby scripts for my lab at RailsConf 2015 on Contributing to Rails.

Running the scripts

To run:

cd railsconf_git/
bundle exec ruby ar_script_example.rb

Practicing Git

Checkout the practicing-git branch.

The practicing-git branch is a branch for practicing git commands for my RailsConf lab on contributing to Rails. Please see that branch for the git commands.
