Mastering the Open Source Puzzle: Navigating from Simplicity to Complexity

One of the most common questions I get while guiding students about open source is how to move from solving simple issues to complex ones. So here I am to help guide you through the enticing world of open-source development. As you progress in your open-source contributions, you'll transition from solving simple issues to tackling more complex challenges. Here are some practical steps to help you make this transition successfully:

  1. Understand the Project
  2. Set up the project locally
  3. Learn from Past Talks and Merged Pull Requests
  4. Solve simple issues
  5. Take on More Challenging Issues
  6. Effective communication
  7. Practice patience
  8. Break tasks into smaller chunks
  9. Adhere to code style and development process
