How to find an Open Source project to contribute to on GitHub?

New folks often find difficulty while finding Open Source projects to contribute to. Yes, sometimes it's overwhelming when we see some big organization/large-scale projects.

But it's not always we need to start with bulky projects. We should always start with the project in which we are comfortable and level up on the way.

Here are some ways to find

1) Issue tab in GitHub

Head over to the Issue tab in GitHub and the search box, type:

label:"good first issue" language:java
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

(change the language para accordingly.)

2) MunGell's awesome-for-beginners repo.

This repo contains beginner-friendly projects related to every programming language.
