I'm posting again about Office Moms & Dads! It is an open source project that my consultancy helped start for the local non-profit that helps kids in the foster care system. Specifically, the app helps schedule/notify volunteers to come in and spend time with kids while they are being placed in the foster care system.

From their website:

Office Moms & Dads is a grassroots volunteer-based organization that serves foster children who have recently been removed from their homes.

Special thanks to @haseebelahi for contributing (PR #201) this past month!


Looks like a great project! (also looks like your link to the roadmap is missing)


Whoops! Yep thanks for catching that. I’ll edit the post.


Thanks for the mention Kyle, looking forward to contribute more!


I starred the project.

I look forward to joining the project as soon as my work relocation is done and life returns to normal.


I'm working on Orpheus GQL. It's an open source project that is meant to help diagnose / visualize / debug GraphQL endpoints. It's still in a pretty early phase, and we don't really have a roadmap, so if you have ideas about features that might be useful to add, we'd love to hear it!


Needed a very simple Poll/Quiz application for work to get user feedback, but couldn't find any that didn't need databases/infrastructure spun up. Created MOB to fit that need. Actively being worked on. Always open for a PR for bugfixes, or any needed features.


I am actively developing wemake-python-styleguide. Or it is also known as "the strictest python linter ever". And I am looking for new contributors.

Linter? It sound like a complex task!

No, it is not. Everything complex is hidden away from you. We just need to write business logic. It is simple. Look at the entry level tasks:

How do I start?

We have a friendly tutorial for newcomers, check it out: wemake-python-styleguide.readthedo...

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters
Beautiful is better than ugly
Explicit is better than implicit
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one-- obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it

What to do if I get lost?

Just ask me any questions and I will help you.


Posting about, it's an open source projects that is looking to provide a "trustless" backed as a service for developers. Goal is to allow developers to focus on their app functionality and not have to worry about dealing with sensitive end user data and payment gateways for remuneration. Let your users pay for services in dollars or crypto. We are also looking to promote the "bring your own data" movement with end users through this project. We are bringing some of the blockchain technologies to Web 2.0

I wrote a banner generator for DEV a few days ago and posted about it here:

I managed to write contribution guidelines & a few issues in case some people want to work on it ! I was also happy to see this comment from Ben Halpern which was the main motivation to keep on working on it:

Super cool! I agree with all the suggestions. Maybe we could all put some work into this and once it's really polished we could link to it or fold it in to the main editor in some way. 🙂

One thing of note: Our image is 1000x420, but, so a little wider than a 2x1 "social image", so the edges get clipped. You may want to make it so the text can't extend too far to the edges of the image, so it will show up properly in both scenarios.

Here's the project's repo link.


I co-maintain a password manager for Android called Android Password Store that serves as a feature-complete client for pass. We're reimagining the app architecture right now to support multiple password stores and it is very overwhelming to get rid of the years of technical debt and rewrite the app. We'd love to get all the help we can :)
