Good first issues with dry-rb

mishmanners profile image Michelle Mannering ・1 min read

Each Friday, we've been hosting Open Source Friday on the GitHub Twitch Channel. We bring in a new maintainer to chat about their project. Recently we spoke to Tim Riley from dry-RB.

Dry-RB is a collection of Ruby libraries. These libraries, or Ruby Gems, help developers write better Ruby code. Tim showed us all the fun facts about the dry-rb Ruby gems.

Since this is Open Source Fridays, Tim talked through the structure of the dry-rb open source project. Tim gives his top tips for organising and maintaining your projects. This is really important when you're looking to attract new contributors.

Speaking of attracting talent, good-first-issues is a great place to start. As always on our Open Source Friday streams, we talked with dry-rb about good-first-issues. If you're a new contributor coming to dry-rb, what can you contribute to? Why are those good-first-issues, well, good? How do they help you get familiar with the project?

Check out the short Twitch clip for some insights.
