I want to get into open source because:
Thank you for your contributions, your projects are very cool, a lot of difficulty in learning these new technologies alone, the courses are very expensive in BR. Their designs are beautiful and very creative. Your advice to start with a project that we are passionate about is perfect, I work mainly as a volunteer and taking these technologies to friends who know very little and don't even know how to use a computer, there are still people like that... I love your work, soon I will be sponsoring. 🫢

I've built or contributed to a project that I'd like to share here, which is:
I am currently developing an open-source project called 'Palettegram.' The idea for this project originated a few months ago when I was working on a client's project. I had to design a website based on the client's unique needs, which sometimes didn't align with standard design practices. During that project, I felt the need for a platform where design professionals could review my work, and I could draw inspiration from other designers. I realized that such a platform would be immensely valuable.

I balance open source work alongside my day job by:
I do it after coming home from work, in the evening. First of all, I make sure to not take office work home, I get them done in the office itself and then in the evening I look for issues on topics based on my interests and believe me, it feels awesome when the thing you have worked on gets merged on the main branch, but we should not work for the result but work to learn from the journey and from the mistakes and optimize ourselves each day.

The language that i use the most and love using is JavaScript But recently I came across Dart language and specific the Fluter Framework it is so much cool to work with it and the main benifit of using flutter framework is that we can create a cross platform app using a single code base(i.e. a single file ). Be it a Android application, IOS Application, Web Application, Desktop application, anything integration of theis code is done easily and also the managing of the software also becomes too easy.

The advice I would give to someone new to open source is:
The best advice that I can give is to start small. Don't immediately feel like you have to try diving into fixing big bugs or implementing advanced features in order to contribute. Fixing typos or adding unit tests are a great way to begin contributing. And if you are starting your own open source project, the same thing applies: Start with a simple idea that can be expanded upon, rather than expecting to be able to plan out and implement a complex program in one go.

I see open source going in the direction of:
In the near future open source contribution will become more global to the students just like any other domain of technology. College students will use open source projects to know how working in community happens in real world. Also small to medium scale projects could be accomplished using open source projects where individuals will contribute to the project and company or the organization will provide stipends based on the work.

I balance open source work alongside my day job by:
Balancing open-source work with a day job can be quite challenging, but it's also incredibly rewarding. First and foremost, time management is key. I make sure to allocate specific blocks of time for open-source contributions, usually during evenings or weekends, so it doesn't interfere with my primary responsibilities at work. Prioritization is crucial too; I identify the most critical open-source projects or issues that align with my interests and expertise, focusing my efforts there. Communication is another vital aspectβ€”I keep my colleagues and managers in the loop about my open-source commitments to ensure transparency and manage expectations. It's also crucial to set realistic goals and not overcommit, as burnout is a real concern. Ultimately, finding the right balance takes time and trial and error, but it's all about passion, dedication, and effective time management to make it work harmoniously.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
I like to use Next.js as it provides certain additional features built upon React like routing, server-side rendering and authentication making it a powerful and efficient choice for building web applications and SEO-friendly websites. The community support provided makes it one of the top choices for web development projects.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
In my work, I have a strong affinity for Python and its powerful libraries like NumPy, pandas, and scikit-learn. I also rely on tools such as Microsoft Power BI and Tableau for interactive data visualization. TensorFlow and scikit-learn are my go-to libraries for machine learning tasks. Additionally, I've explored deep learning with TensorFlow and PyTorch and have experience in text analysis using libraries like NLTK and spaCy. These tools and libraries have been instrumental in my data-driven journey.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
I love using Node.Js, Express and MongoDB for server-side programming, since I am a backend enthusiast! I wish to become a MERN developer, so I plan on learning REACT in the coming months. Apart from that, my university necessitates the use of C, and I am most comfortable in using it. Also I like using C++ for competitive programming and DSA. I have also learnt Java, and have used frameworks like SPRING along with RDBMS like MySQL/ PostgreSQL for backend related stuff.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
My most preferred language is Python as it has the easiest syntax of all the major languages. Python is very versatile language as it can be used in Data Science ,Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Web Scraping and many more. Talking about frameworks I prefer Django for production level projects and Flask or FAST API for small projects. Threejs or Webgl for react is definitely a project that amazed me the most . I think it is cool if we can add renderers with few lines of code and it also with some tweaking offers ray tracing , with which we can design interactive websites and games too.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
The language that i use most and love is Javascript. My coding journey started with cpp(like most people) but soon i discovered javascript and immediately fell in love with it and since then it never let me down. I also found out that using js we could do anything for example Machine Learning (using Tenserflow.js), create apps (using react native), backend, frontend and many more things. I look forward to keep using it and make something cool with it in future.

The advice I would give to someone new to open source is:
To begin, select an open source project that aligns with your interests and skills. Pay careful attention to the project's documentation, including the README, CONTRIBUTING, and CODE_OF_CONDUCT files, to understand its objectives and guidelines.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
Python stands out as my preferred programming language due to its remarkable versatility and extensive library ecosystem. Its dynamic capabilities enable me to tackle a wide range of tasks efficiently. In particular, I frequently harness libraries like TensorFlow, OpenCV, and Scikit-learn for machine learning endeavors, harnessing Python's power to achieve my goals.
sanchitaa14 ⭐
The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
I like to use three.js because it makes my websites look more eye-catching and also provides a 3D like experience to its users. Along with this I am an AI/ML enthusiast and love to learn new things. I am a MERN stack developer and love to work on making websites using react and express js. I like using java and am looking forward to learning springboot so as to gain experience in it. I have worked with javascript and absolutely consider as one of my most sought after languages.
dharamveer-gupta
The coolest open source project I've ever come across is:
Jetpack Compose is the coolest open source project I've come across & used. It is a modern UI toolkit for Android that makes it easier and faster to build beautiful and responsive user interfaces. It's declarative (intuitive Kotlin APIs) and Compose takes care of rendering it on the screen. This makes it much easier to create complex and dynamic UIs, and it also makes your code more readable and maintainable. Compose is also very fast and efficient, and it's easy to learn and use.
Kaniz-Fatma ⭐
My go-to resources for learning new things in open source are:
The first go-to resource for learning open source concepts alongside contributing to it is 'GitHub' . GitHub provides us convenience for contributing , raising issues and more things. YouTube is also good for learning concepts. Going through documentation gives us a more clear and broad view. And lastly supportive friends from any social media platforms who encourages us to go forward. I find these resources really helpful.

I want to get into open source because:
I want to get into open source because I want to be a part of a community of developers who are passionate about building and improving software. I also want to be able to understand large codebases, and I believe that contributing to open source projects is the best way to achieve this. Additionally, I am interested in learning more about the ways in which open source helps developers. For example, I am curious to learn more about how open source projects can provide developers with access to new technologies, best practices, and feedback from other developers. In short, I want to get into open source because I want to learn, grow, and contribute to the development community.

I want to get into open source because:
I want to get into open source because it fascinates me a lot, how I can contribute in ohters' projects despite being a fresher. The best thing about open source, as its name suggests, is that it is open to all to see the source code, suggest chsnges to it and even make the projects better by their contributions. When project initiated by one mind gets the expertise and ideas of multiple minds, it always turns into something more fantastic and unique.

The tech (tools, languages, libraries, etc) I most use and love is:
I develop in Python for my academic research. I've had expereinces with machine learning using scikit-learn, tensorflow and pytorch. I'm trying to use pytorch with lightning at the moment to simplify a lot of my workflows.

The advice I would give to someone new to open source is:
Don't be afraid to jump straight in, it's the best way to learn and great fun too! Find a project you're passionate about, or start your own, as contributing is far more fulfilling when you're working on something that you really care about :)

Finding Projects

A common struggle for a lot of new developers, when getting started with open source, is just finding projects to contribute to. We've put together a guide to help you with this, see: Finding Projects to Contribute to, as well as a list of projects tagged as welcoming for first-time contributors git-in.to/find-projects.

The following hand-picked projects, may be a good place to start:

Have I missed any? Add yours to this list, by including it under the projects section in resources.yml and following the guidelines in CONTRIBUTING.md to submit a PR.

Contributing

Submitting contributions to any repository is easy!

The first step is to check out the projects contributing guidelines (here's ours). These will usually outline setup instructions, and give you pointers as to where and how you can contribute.

Next you'll need to either fork and clone the repo, or if it's a small change you can just edit it via the GitHub UI. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you get started with that.

Finally, you can submit the pull request! Head back to the source repo, and you should see a new button, saying "Create Pull Request". If the author has set a PR template, be sure it's filled in properly.
