This is a very broad question but I would like to narrow it down. So how did you begin contributing to open source and felt more comfortable contributing to large and widely used projects. I would love to hear your experience and tips.
As someone who’s programming in Python and really wants to contribute to open source projects but always get overwhelmed by looking at the large codebases. How do you you deal with that and how do you get yourself familiarized with the codebase.
I have created tiny open source projects but never tried contributing to an actual open source projects.
I would love to hear thoughts and tips on how you can overcome the fear and start contributing to open source projects and even become a maintainer
