Hey guys, I'm a front end developer looking to do his first open source contribution, my main problem is looking for projects to start with since I work for only 9 months and I've been coding for last year and a half. If any of you have some open source project you need help with or know for some project that needs contributors feel free to comment down below and I'll check it out, hopefully, this will be useful for more developers than just me.

Hey Kuldeep,
Would love to have you on board. Best place to start is to have a look at the GitHub page; there are a few issues that are open. Let me know by commenting on that issue if you want to work on one.
If you have any questions about a particular issue then add a comment with the question to that issue and I'll get back to you.
If you have any other ideas or comments, go ahead and create a new issue so we can discuss.

Hey,

First of all nice project, I can definitely see how it can be improved but unfortunately, I've never worked in Angular and just recently started using typescript, I'll most definitely try to contribute but it probably won't be as much as I want.

No worries, there are plenty of things to be done that don’t require Angular, like designing a better looking UI (I’m about as creative as a brick) or improving the documentation.

I made a funny npm package github.com/strdr4605/mockingcase. It is beginner friendly for contribution. These are some simple tasks that you can try, and one related to frontend frameworks.

Wow, this was just something I was looking for, simple enough for a beginner but advanced enough to not feel like an imposter after it.

Thanks, I'll most definitely try and tackle some issues.

You should start by saying what is your specialty.

Most definitely, my specialty is javascript and for framework often my choice is vue.js cause of his simplicity but I've done several projects with react so I am quite familiar with it.

There are several areas to contribute in this project. If Rails isn't your thing creating questions for a course is an option.
