Hello people,

I am interested in web technologies. I know basic about open source and did some contribution also. I familiar with git and github and make PR also. Many of my PR merged.

But what will i do next?
How can learn from open source?
How can start contributing in org with large codebase?

I need some advice for "what will do next?"

Thanks in advance. 😄

What language(s) and frameworks are you familiar with? Is there an open source web application you especially interested in? For example dev.to is open source you can try to contribute to it.

My favorite language is JavaScript and I don't know any frameworks but mostly I use react library and learning MERN stack now.

I want to contribute in any popular libraries but problem is that understanding of huge codebase.
So I want to contribute in small and useful libraries.

Have you such JavaScript library which will match above discuss?
Thanks again 😄

I don't have anything, it is all you who need to dig it out.

MERN stands for MongoDB, Express, React, Node, right?

Then look for projects that are using those. e.g. flip through nodejs or even better express

Start by reading and writing tests, those usually need less understanding of the codebase.
