Subject: GNOME 3: meet the developers, try it out, and learn how to contribute

The Boston Summit is a yearly conference at which contributors of the Free and Open Source GNOME project meet to discuss latest developments and hack together. It will take place from Saturday, October 6 to Monday, October 8 on MIT campus. This year, there is a set of newcomer events to introduce people to GNOME and to contributing to GNOME. Anyone is welcome to attend these events and the conference, both of which are free.

The events include:

* Friday, October 5, 6-9pm Try out GNOME 3 and learn how to contribute
* Sunday, October 7, 10am-12pm Learn how to develop for GNOME in C
* Sunday, October 7, 3-6pm Fix-your-first-bug mini-hackfest

You can learn more about GNOME at http://www.gnome.org and about these events at https://live.gnome.org/Boston2012/Newcomers

The event on Friday is co-sponsored by MIT ACM/IEEE Club and is a great event to attend if you are interested in contributing to Free and Open Source Software, but are not sure where to start.
