With Hacktoberfest just around the corner I started thinking about what I would like to contribute this year (both in October and going forward).
Over the course of the year I've been doing my best to be an advocate for accessibility in web applications, and so I thought a natural thing to do would be to help improve accessibility in Open Source, one Pull Request at a time!
I've added a page over at Up Your A11y: Open A11y OSS Issues Looking for Help to help identify issues actively looking for contributors.
You'll find open GitHub issues that:
- Are from open source projects
- Reference 'a11y', 'accessibility', or 'accessible'
- Have the "Help wanted" or "Good first issue" label
- Have no assignee or pull request yet
Whatever you end up doing this year and beyond in OSS, happy coding! 👩💻👨💻
