How to start

Start contributing

You've found a project, prepared thoroughly, and now it's time to contribute!

Here are a few pointers and reminders.

Don't forget: reach out and focus
Contact the project lead or join the project's community to get started. While you can explore contributing to multiple projects, focusing on 2 or 3 allows you to deeply engage and understand each project, making your contributions more meaningful.

Making your first contribution
Contribution starts with understanding the project's current needs. Once you found a project you'd be interested in on OnlyDust, joined their community, check out the GitHub repository for open issues or suggest a new one if you see a gap. Engage with the project’s community for insights and tips on where your efforts can be most impactful.
