Getting Started with Contributing to Open Source!
I am holding this information session on how to get started with contributing to open sources.

I have created a repository[1] to curate links and useful stuff to help you to get started with contributing to open sources.

If you are interested in contributing to open source projects but don't know where to start? Have lots of questions? You can join this chat and ask your questions. Other Outreachy and GSoC interns will be sharing their experience, advises.

There will be space to ask questions. You can also post your questions on the event page. Feel free to ask anything which makes it difficult for you to get started with contributing to open sources.
