Open-Source For Your Portfolio

  1. Open-source projects are good for you if you’re looking to practice your skills, whether it’s coding, user interface design, graphic design, writing, or organizing.
  2. Many people form lifelong friendships through their participation in open source where they find warm, welcoming communities.
  3. The acts of learning and teaching can be fulfilling activity too. Open source offers opportunities to practice leadership and management skills, such as resolving conflicts, organizing teams of people, and prioritizing work.
  1. Effectively communicate with others. It should be done publicly, keep your requests short and direct, ask questions if needed.
  2. Gather context. Do a quick check to make sure your idea is new and hasn’t been discussed already. If it hasn’t — make your move.
  3. Open an issue. Do it when you can’t fix an error yourself or when you propose a new feature.
  4. Open a pull request to submit fixes, start working on a contribution that you’ve already discussed.
