Any open source projects you'd recommend for beginners/intermediates to get started contributing?

There is a way to search for projects and tasks that are for beginners - I believe Github labels these "first timers only." To be honest though, I don't know how to search for those yet. It's on my to-do list to search for that.

But if you are going through an open-sourced site or platform who has their source code and documentation on a site like Github and you notice they have an error in their site or a typo somewhere, you can raise an issue on Github or suggest a fix. That's what I did in the post above, and that counts as open-source contribution!
