What are some good resources for finding open source projects to contribute to? Aside from just haunting GitHub?

@jrrohrer there are some websites dedicated to this such as goodfirstissue.dev/ or up-for-grabs.net/ , but scouring GitHub also works, specially if you use tags such as the ones for programming languages.

October is a special month for open source too, with the Hacktoberfest event coming up. A lot of maintainers prepare their projects to welcome newcomers, so it's a good time to jump in!

Thanks so much for your answer! I will definitely check out those resources. I always hear about Hacktoberfest, but I've never looked into it. Time to do some reading :)
