#022 - The Karmabot Story and Contributing to Open Source
Apr 12, 2021
Julian Sequeira & Bob Belderbos

This week we talk with Patrick Groß, long time PyBites community member and lead developer of Karmabot, the bot that handles karma points and other tasks in the PyBites Slack Community.

We talk about how Patrick got into Python and how he really learned it, his switch from a university to a data analytics job and ... his overhaul of our early Karmabot prototype, turning it into the mature open source project it is today (thanks!)

You'll learn about the improvements Patrick made to Karmabot, integrating "Hypermodern Python" concepts, and some of the lessons he learned from contributing to open source overall (hint: both tech and soft skills were important!)

We hope this episode will inspire you to start (or continue) contributing to open source, it's a beautiful thing.
