Don't think that you can only contribute as a developer. You can also find and test issues, write documentation, support users and more.

You can also contribute to Formbricks as a designer! We have a dedicated repo for that:

How do you find projects that need help with their documentation?

Collapse
 
lexlohr profile image
Alex Lohr

Excellent question. The answer is: I don't know of a single project that wouldn't need help with documentation. Developers want to code, so they usually only write minimal documentation. Also, documentation written by a technical writer is usually easier for beginners.

Oh. Okay. I think my question is, how do I find projects I can help with their documentation?
I am a technical writer and want to get into open source. Documentation is something I'm really passionate about.

Thread Thread

What kind of projects do you want to support? I personally support Solid.js and solid-primitives, but no project can ever have enough technical writers to improve their documentation.

I tend more towards frontend Web projects, seeing as that is where my skill set lies the most.
I'd check out these projects you've mentioned. Thanks!

A very useful post. I think all OSS lovers should follow to be updated.
First of all, it is informative. Second, interesting and informative.
Sometime people search interesting project to join. This may help them very much.
I also search for help in areg-sdk, and still lot of issues did not write yet. Mainly C/C++/GTest skills are required.
