As you may know, every October the dev community at large starts an event called Hacktoberfest. The idea is simple: a whole month specially designed to help onboard people with little to no prior experience contributing to open-source codebases. In return, you get t-shirts, a valuable experience, and maybe will find a community you'll want to be a part of. Win-win!
I've listed some tasks I have in mind, but please feel free to join our little community on Discord! My fellow maintainers and me will be happy to give you more pointers, ideas, help, and feedback. Until then, happy Hacktoberfest! 🚀
- If you're fluent in React, we're looking to revamp the package search interface on our website. We're displaying a lot of information, and we'd like to highlight the most important ones in as few clicks as possible.
- If you're a great technical writer, we could really use your help refining our documentation. We're often not native english speakers, and I personally make typos, grammatical errors, or sometimes even forget words in the of my sentences.
- If you'd like working on the CLI, we have various tasks tagged Good First Issue that we've identified as being useful without requiring more than a minimal amount of context.
- If you want to take a look at the infra side, talk with us! There are various places where we'd benefit from better typings, automated workflows, extra tests, or many other small things that let us focus on designing new features.
