How to contribute to OSS AsyncAPI Initiative ๐ŸŒˆ

You may remember that I joined Postman, focusing solely on the Open-Source (OSS) AsyncAPI Initiative. ๐Ÿ’•

Yesterday, someone on social media asked me what contributions are needed the most for AsyncAPI Initiative. After asking my team, they gave me a comprehensive list of what is most needed. Ready to contribute? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

What contributions are needed most

  • Volunteers and speakers for the upcoming October Hackathon and our Online Conference running from November 16-18.
  • More docs!
  • Dev effort in our react component in the 1.0 version so that we can start working on Studio UI.
  • More hands-on CLI development; we're using TS and Ink.
  • Regular maintenance for our VS Code plugin.
  • Continue improvements and add new features to core tools such as our spec parser/validator and code generator.
  • Test out our new baby Glee and share feedback.
  • Our website sorely needs a Front-End Dev that is willing to work without designs; we're using React, Tailwind, and Next.js. (Note: Since our OSS team doesn't have a designer, this means being open to improve stuff via trial/error and having the patience to accept that in open source, any contributor can jump into a PR and comment.)

AsyncAPI, the future of event-driven architecture

Thank you for contributing ๐Ÿ’•

We constantly need help at AsyncAPI Initiative and look forward to regular contributors. In return, we offer any onboarding support you need and a lovely community of people!
