I am in search of open source projects to contribute. Firstly, I hope it can increase my job hunting chance. Secondly, I can learn more technologies and better coding styles. Thirdly, I can grow my connection circle.
While searching for a proper project to contribute, I encountered IBM Call for Code via a twitter advertisement. As IBM was not familiar for me, like Microsoft, Google or even Oracle, it interested me more. Consequently, I started learning about it.
I continued to my research, watched videos, read medium.com account, and participated in the slack channel. I felt the atmosphere is a more student one. Also I found the slack channel's traffic does not seems very high. But, finally, I reached out to main github page. Among the projects, I found Project Lantern in the Call for Code Project Catalog. Project Lantern, which is about Long-Range Wireless Apps, is consisted of several projects. One of them is lantern-serve which seems a traditional back-end server via express.js or similar technologies. Currently I am intended to investigate more on this project.
