So seriously lost

Hello everyone,
I heard that GitHub was the place to quickly get started helping program for open source projects. I know some beginner/intermediate level Python programming. But I have been browsing this site for hours and finding a project that I can write code for isn’t easy at all. Could anyone point me in the right direction? I already did many of the basic tutorials on how the site works, but they are not very helpful on actually finding a project I can write basic python code for. Help! Thanks.

Hi @pathmer, you might find the section on finding a project to contribute to in the Open Source Guides helpful in your search.
