A community-led mentorship opportunity for Hacktoberfest 2021

πŸ‘‹ Do you know? The No-shave November campaign started with the aim of raising awareness and funding for cancer prevention, research and education. Such an innovative way right!

What are we developers waiting for then? Buckle up and let's get ready for β€œHacktoberfest'21”. Let’s make β€œOpen Source October” a ritual for every open-source contributor! This October let's contribute, collaborate and educate ourselves and others about open-source!

To do so, I along with a few other amazing folks have decided to mentor newbies in kickstarting their open-source journey.

Project Maintainers

If you happen to be an experienced person in the field of programming and maintaining projects, you might have a few beginner-friendly issues that can be taken up by beginners. So, we are calling out project maintainers to add issues to the repository. Also, go through the blog post for a complete understanding of our initiative. πŸ™Œ


If you happen to be a beginner in this space, don’t scratch your head my friend we got your back! We’ve tried to compile a list of handpicked beginner-friendly issues & repositories. Get your hands dirty on them, try to resolve a first-timers-only issues and if you face any difficulties the mentors will guide you. What are you waiting for? Get on board now. And also, don't forget to introduce yourself in the discussions section.

Open Source October is a vibe and we are all set to groove and code!
