Who's looking for open source contributors? (week 58)

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:

  1. README.md
  2. CONTRIBUTING.md

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

Also, let us know if you'll be participating in Hacktoberfest.

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 contributing!

Hi @jarvisscript ! You would be excited to know that you can be at the top of HackoberFest by contributing to me and my teams repository.

Let me give a quick info to who we are, I'm Ezpie, with a capital E - read here for more info. I'm the creator of a website known as ezpie, me and my team writes technical blog posts about all sorts of things and we love doing it for free, in fact I'm even making a pytorch course too.

All you have to do is add some blog posts for our website and make a PR for that. That's all you have to do and you're done, no need to code or scratch you head around a problem, cause we love helping and learning(We teach, We learn and We build for fun). You can star our repository here.

In case you want to code a bit you can also contribute to our web browser build using python(yes a real bad choice for making a borwser, but read the desciption).

I hope you find our project(s) fun to contribute to, we don't like making things defficult for contributors to contribute to, so yeah everything is simple and easy to understand, in case you have any problem, just hit us out and we will help you out.

I am working on this alone. The project is supposed to be a neural network library for javascript. I am thinking of creating a UI on top of it so it'll be easy for anyone to create models. As of now the objective is to add multi threading and CNN. If you'd like to contribute you are more than welcome to do so!

The project is made in a way so that it can help you to explain the internals of the model. Every model have an explain method.

As of now I am working on this project alone. The project is supposed to be like an online version of DevUtils, set of tools and utilities available for Mac. If you'd like to contribute you are more than welcome to do so! Just make sure you go through the docs to get the code running locally.

We are always looking for contributors to share what they want to do before they die on Before I Die Code and additionally have a list of open issues that are great for first timers. We are a React based open source project that are continually looking to improve the UI, backend capabilities and future tech stack. See you in Before I Die Code!
