GitHub는 세계에서 가장 큰 오픈 소스 커뮤니티의 호스트로서 수천 개의 오픈 소스 프로젝트가 생성 된 이후로 성장했습니다. 무료 및 오픈 소스 소프트웨어는 매일 사용하는 기술 같은 Mozilla Firefox, 7-Zip, Linux 및 개발자가 소프트웨어를 만드는 데 사용하는 더 많은 도구의 토대를 제공합니다. 세계는 실제로 오픈 소스에서 실행되기 때문에 이번 발렌타인 데이에 사랑을 보여줍시다.
Open source = open world
Git, GitHub, and open source projects make it possible for people sitting at different sides of the world to learn from each other and make better software.

Contributing to open source software is a great way to continue growing as a developer or to gain experience before your first job. Students who contribute to open source projects get an opportunity to collaborate with developers of every level, and make meaningful changes to tools and services that run the world. They also get to join international communities that provide support for them throughout their careers.
Contributions beyond code
For anyone looking to get started, documentation is the best place. You start having some idea about what’s going on, and gradually you can step up your game and contribute code or even deliver talks and workshops!

Your first contribution doesn’t need to be a brand new feature—it’s okay to start small. Contributions to open source projects don’t even have to be code. You can create art for new logos, help with usability testing, or add new information to the project’s documentation.
Learn more about what you can bring to a project with our guide for first-time contributors. We have plenty of resources to help you find projects, or check out what other people are doing in the community.
