How do you get started with open source? ↦
Thanks to Ed Hazledine for being a part of the Changelog community! You should totally listen to his podcast, starting with this episode.
A Question of Code is a podcast that each episode takes an interesting question that’s come up in Ed’s first year of learning to code and delves deeper into the answer in order to help those starting out with their first steps in programming (as well as helping Ed!).
In Slack Ed asked about meaningful ways to get involved and contribute to open source. Share your thoughts and advice in the discussion below.

I have some opinions…
Meta note: When you’re considering a project, check out things like how often they’re merging 3rd party prs (look at the merged PR list vs closed/open and see if there’s good representation of a number of people). Also look for conversation in those PRs and in issues… is this a community that is welcoming to new members?
Jerod co-hosts The Changelog, crashes JS Party, and takes out the trash (his old code) once in awhile.
Great idea for a podcast, Ed! 👏
I love what @kball posted, so here’s a hearty
