I’m a keen open source contributor and try to regularly contribute to projects I use and admire. An example of projects I’ve contributed to:
24PullRequests - “Give little gifts of code for Christmas” encouraging participation in open source contributing and supporting the maintainers of some of the software many of us take for granted.
canned - File-based canned responses for JSON APIs. I’ve used this extensively for a project and have tried to return the favour with some contributions.
My website! - This site! Fully developed open source and published via Netlify.
