Many times we developers have come across the perfect contributed module, with a section of code that just doesn't do it for us. Since the Drupal infrastructure is Open to all, it is simpler to take that awesome-ish module and make the changes we need to make it full on awesome. Then we need to take those changes and apply it back to the module and let the whole world bask in the awesome, but we don't get to commit, to Git. (Rule of threes). Therefore we need to create a patch that allows the maintainer of the module to easily combine your great code with theirs. In this session we'll go over the acceptable ways to clone a projects repository, create a great looking patch and contribute said greatness back to the project. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. Oh, was it mentioned that this will work with Drupal Core as well? It should have been.
