The First Open Source Contributor Summit

Contributing to open source can be challenging, especially when the first step for getting involved is unclear.

What is a contributor summit?

In partnership with Swimm, the Open Sauced community will hold a free and unique event focused on educating attendees about becoming contributors to open-source projects. The goal for this event is to bring the community together to get any context missing from the files.

Learn directly from the maintainers of projects ways you can contribute during Hacktoberfest.

When is this happening?

This event kicks off with talks from maintainers and experts in the open-source on October 15th. It continues asynchronously via our community discord with workshops, Q&A, and discussions focused on getting folks involved in open source projects.

If this sounds like the event for you, RSVP on our Meetup page and come ready to learn.

Some of the projects represented during the event.

A new kind of frontend build tool. Fast, lightweight, unbundled. ✌️




What is Snowpack?

Snowpack is a modern frontend build tool for faster web development. It replaces heavier, more complex bundlers like webpack or Parcel in your development workflow.

Snowpack leverages JavaScript's native module system (known as ESM) to create a first-of-its-kind build system that never builds the same file twice. Snowpack pushes changes instantly to the browser, saving you hours of development time traditionally spent waiting around for your bundler.

How it works

Supabase is a combination of open source tools. We’re building the features of Firebase using enterprise-grade, open source products. If the tools and communities exist, with an MIT, Apache 2, or equivelant open license, we will use and support that tool. If the tool doesn't exist, we build and open source it ourselves. Supabase is not a 1-to-1 mapping of Firebase. Our aim is to give developers a Firebase-like developer…
