While a contributor day in the core team gives you a basic idea on how the development environment is setup and the processes involved, it is often hard to follow up on that. Trying to find tickets to work on is tough when there are almost 5000 open tickets around, and when your ideas are rejected for seemingly no apparent reason, frustration quickly becomes a factor.

This talk addresses what comes next: How do you spend your contributing time efficiently? How do you find access to developer groups? How do you make your ideas heard? Following up on your first contribution efforts is not always as straightforward as one may expect, and the goal of this talk is to prepare you for a beneficial long-term relationship as a core contributor, by presenting advanced techniques and clarifying expectations.
