What is this list

One of my 2021 programming goals is to contribute to open-source projects. I had no idea where to start, or what projects would be welcoming to new contributors.

While compiling my list I looked at the following things:

  • Labels such as "good first issue" or "newbie"
  • Detailed contributor guides
  • The project's community
  • Personal interest in the project

Taking those requirements into consideration, I came out with a list of 6.

7 PHP Open Source Projects

phpMyAdmin

CodeIgniter
Thank you to php-rocs for the recommendation

October CMS

Yii

Drupal

Freescout

Matomo Analytics

Special Shoutout

I would like to particularly shoutout Onramp from the Fine Folks at Tighten. If you are interested in contributing to educational resources for people interested in becoming Laravel programmers, check out Onramp. Learn more about contributing here.
