From John’s announcement:Reviewing and testing PRs is the best way to start contributing to Bitcoin Core, but it’s difficult to know where to start.
There are hundreds of open PRs, many require a lot of contextual knowledge, and contributors and reviewers often use unfamiliar terminology.
This weekly IRC club is for people who want to help review Bitcoin Core PRs but find the process intimidating.
Everyone is welcome to speak and questions are encouraged!It can be intimidating to get started in crypto, especially Bitcoin.
Bitcoin has been around for over 10 years now, thousands of developers are actively building different parts of the ecosystem, and contributing to the protocol itself can feel out of reach.
John’s here to tell you that it isn’t out of reach at all, and he’s working to help you get involved!.If you believe Bitcoin is the future of money on and off the internet, then it can surely use your help.
Head on over to John’s announcement post with more scheduling details about when you can join and hop in!.
