Contributing to open source shouldn’t feel like climbing a mountain!
We know that the contributor journey is not always an easy one. Finding a project in the first place can take hours of searching, but even then, there may not be enough information to start solving issues. From missing instructions and unanswered questions to inefficient validation of pull requests, the open source journey can be much more difficult than it should be.
