Picking a project

Start small

Let's see some examples.

Picking a small project

> Activity
> Good documentation
> Lots of issues to pick from
> Managable size

People won't be mad at you for contributing to their project ...

.. as long as you read the docs :D

Before you start on your first issue

> Read setup instructions and available documenation
> Setup the project locally
> Learn about Pull Requests

Picking an issue

> Documentation

> Translations

> Practicing

Have fun ♥
