It is important to find projects that have a good contributor guide as well. Even if you aren't super familiar with a language the repo maintainers can make it easier to get started. This might be a good list to check out 😄

Thank you Christina! It's nearly spooky season and I have a big goal to get started contributing to open source over the next month!

If you are ever interested in contributing to Forem (The software that powers DEV and CodeNewbie) let me know.
I'd love to help you find a good issue and get started 😄 If you have specific programming languages you work with and need help finding a different project I could probably help with that too!

I am INCREDIBLY interested, Christina! I am most practiced in Javascript, React, MySQL, and MongoDB-- but always am hungry to learn new things. Any help toward a good first issue would be hugely appreciated, and any advice will be taken to heart. Not sure the best way to connect-- but my github is github.com/callumreid. Thank you for the kindness 😁

I'm working on a list of good issues this next week for Hacktoberfest so I will definitely reach out to you. I'm on Twitter too if you are there and want to chat through DMs. twitter.com/coffeecraftcode
