Why contribute to open-source projects?

If you're here, then you probably understand the importance of the open-source ecosystem. But it's just not about how open-source software has the potential to change the world. It is also very beneficial for developers to contribute to open-source.

It is said that there is no better code base than that maintained by an open-source community, and it's probably true. Without strict adherence to code quality and governance, imagine how chaotic it will be for a group of developers who have never even met in person to build world-class software.

Here are a few benefits of contributing to open-source:

  • You get a thorough understanding of the concepts involved in the open-source project you're participating
  • You get in touch with more experienced and talented developers from whom you can learn and get mentorship
  • Contributions to open-source is a strong proof of someone's technical acumen. It's better to have contributions on your preferred tech stack rather than just mentioning about it on your CV
  • Contributing to open-source is fun! You get to meet new people while accumulating new skills along the way

At SigNoz, we believe that the future of software is open-source. SigNoz is a full-stack application performance monitoring tool with which we hope to empower developers to solve issues in production quickly. We believe a developer-first and community-driven approach would be best suited for a product that is used by developers day in and day out.

We have a vibrant community of more than 250 developers collaborating together to build the next-gen open-source monitoring solution to keep your systems in fine health. The best thing about open-source is its community where you get to meet a diverse set of people coming together to solve some challenging problems.

We're looking forward to help you take your first steps in the world of open-source. We would also love to host folks who want to learn more about performance monitoring software.

So, let's not wait to create those pull requests and get some green dots on your GitHub profile πŸ₯³πŸŽ‰
