Tips and Tricks for working in the MRI Codebase

Have you ever had the urge to contribute to Ruby? Maybe to fix a bug you saw, add more documentation, or put up a PR to go alongside a feature request?

Then this talk is for you! We will discuss how to develop in MRI, by learning the C we need to get started, and how to build, test, and debug within the MRI codebase. Even if you already have experience developing in MRI, this talk will hopefully give you tips to make it easier to contribute more!
