Going Into Open-Source Projects as A Way to Brush Up

github logo ・1 min read

I want to know if it is a good idea to jump into an Open-Source project as a means to brush off any rust on anything that might be an obstacle.

I have been meaning to jump on a project but have been apprehensive due to the fact that i might not know enough to contribute. Should i let that stop me or jump head on?

No never let anything stop you, especially the wild world of coding....
