Looking for advices to join an open-soucre project

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi, I'm new on this developer world.
I have learned a lot of things in school, but never applied them in real life.
I'm very interested in Web development, and i am willing to participate in any project with front-end or back-end position. 

Are there any projects I can join for having more experiences ?

I hope you can give me few tips to find a small and compatible project for people like me.

Thanks for your advices,

 

I appreciate all your help.

Hi @TDSkyz ,

 

Check out https://opensource.guide/how-to-contribute/ for some tips about contributing to OSS. As you’ll notice, your topic is now here in the Project Development Help and Advice board. No action is needed on your part; you can continue the conversation as normal here. 

 

Cheers!

Andrea

First narrow down your goals. "Web development" means a lot of things: do you want to work with HTML? Javascript? Ruby? PHP? etc

 

Do you have any interests, hobbies? Look for projects that align.

 

Start with the tools available to you:

 

- https://github.com/topics/help-wanted : find projects with issues marked "help wanted"

https://help.github.com/articles/finding-open-source-projects-on-github/ : github help

https://www.firsttimersonly.com/

- google it: "finding open source projects"

 

Don't expect to be "invited" or to "join". Find a project of interest, fork the code, get it working in your environment, add a feature or fix an issue, then submit a pull request.
