Who's looking for open source contributors? (week 53)

Open Source thrives through shared efforts. Whether you're a newcomer or a veteran, we're here to encourage your contributions, motivate your endeavors, and provide valuable assistance to maintainers. Together, we are building amazing things!

Tell us about your project

Promote your project by providing a link to the repo. Everyone who posted in previous weeks is welcome back this week, as always 😄

Open Source should be a welcoming space for contributors. The README is the front door of your project. If you'd like to check out an example of a README, here's our OpenSauced/insights README.

If you submit please have the following in your repo to make it welcoming and helpful for contributors:


Feel free to drop your issues and repos in the OpenSauced Discord #👀-looking-for-contributors channel at any time!

If you're new to open source, and you're not sure where to start, check out our Intro to Open Source course.

Finally, consider reading the Best Practices for Maintainers.

Just a note to say, we've restarted this post from something Ben was doing for a while :star-struck:

Happy coding!

Dear potential contributor,
if you are interested in C/C++ development and want to dive deep in abstraction, then areg-sdk definitely is the project that you should look.

AREG is an event-driven Object RPC (ORPC) framework, that asynchronously triggers methods of the remote objects called services.

The project consists of framework (engine), and multiple tools, where a few exist, some under development and others are in pipeline. It can become a big project, which has very good chances to compete gRPC, ZeroMQ or similar communication engines. The focus of AREG is to be a framework for embedded and/or multiprocessing application development, and provide a mist-network in IoT stack.

If you are new in C/C++, but want to try and learn quick, there is a list of isues, which are not hard, but very important and very useful for the project. You can pick any of them and because of nature, you can even do partially. When you modify the existing code or create a new, please don't forget to add your name (and contact) as a co-author / author.

If you are experienced in C/C++ and think this can be an interesting project to join, please feel free to drop a message, and I'll tell where am I currently and what are the plans.

If you are not a C/C++ developer, but still would like somehow to help the project. Then please star ⭐ the repo, so that you'll help to increase number of visitors and probability to have more contributors. I appreciate any help!
