Who's looking for open source contributors? (week 62)

We're coming to the end of week one of Hacktoberfest! I don't know about you, but I've been really excited to talk to some new contributors who are thinking beyond green squares and are becoming part of the open source community with meaningful participation and goals to grow. Let's help them find more opportunities to contribute!

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 πŸ˜„

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 #πŸ‘€-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 and our Hacktoberfest series.

Finally, consider reading our Maintainer Series.

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

Happy contributing!
