First Timers Only - Get involved in Open Source and commit code to your first project! View on GitHub First Timers Only Friendly Open Source projects should reserve specific issues for newbies. Welcome! Let's do some Open Source! Contributing to open source for the first time can be scary and a little overwhelming. Perhaps you're a Code Newbie or maybe you've been coding for a while but haven't found a project you felt comfortable contributing to. You can do it! Here's how. If you have never contributed to an open source project before and you're just getting started, consider exploring these resources. is a site that aggregates (rolls up and makes easy to explore) projects that actively want help. They label those projects with things like "up-for-grabs," "jump-in" or "help wanted." Read blog posts and guides on how to contribute to an open source project, then pick one! If you're just getting started with tech and are considering being a social developer, we've made a documentary training movie for you! Get Involved in Tech walks you through setting up your GitHub account, exploring StackOverflow, setting up a blog and starting to tweet! Wondering what someone else's first contribution was? You can easily find out any GitHub username's "First Pull Request" here! (I think you'll find that most people's first PRs were relatively small like Kent's). We think that Open Source projects should value civility and kindness and be patient with new developers and we encourage you to explore projects that have a published Code of Conduct and we hope you do too! Yes, it's scary. But SO rewarding! We asked folks on Twitter what they felt like when they made their first contribution to an Open Source Project. Here's just a few of their tweets. Some had great experiences: @shanselman proud and excited. Added a feature to freecodecamp. Felt welcomed and wondered what else I was able to do.— Ashley Drake (@al_draco) August 10, 2015 @shanselman I've added a case for my project in ServiceStack.Text + small test. Jumped around office for an hour when it was approved.— Victor Suzdalev (@victor_suzdalev) August 10, 2015 @shanselman Proud. It is really great to something you did on the web for others to see.— Mark (@marcusp619) August 10, 2015 @shanselman added expression support for labels in a GIS project. Felt fantastic. Now core developer on said project.— Nathan Woodrow (@madmanwoo) August 10, 2015 Some had bad experiences. The purpose of first-timers-only is to help everyone have an empowering and welcoming first experience as they enter the world of Open Source Software! @shanselman Can't remember the project, but it felt hostile, because I didn't know the contribution rules of the project, and got remarks.— Bart Verkoeijen (@bgever) August 10, 2015 Are you an OSS Project Owner? If you are an OSS (Open Source Software) Project owner, then consider marking a few open issues with the label first-timers-only. The first-timers-only label explicitly announces: I'm willing to hold your hand so you can make your first PR. This issue is rather a bit easier than normal. And anyone who's already contributed to open source isn't allowed to touch this one! First timer contributions are normally very small and easy (One recent first-timers-only issue was literally three lines of simple changes! And the changes were described in great detail and tested by the project maintainer). But this makes it easier for the contributor to get the hang of the contribution process rather than the contribution itself. Remember, this isn't as much about getting your project features implemented quickly as it is about helping first timers. Why is YAL (yet another label) like first-timers-only important? Because it makes a statement that first timers are welcome, that they are valued, and that they can start on your project! Often the hard part of getting into open source for the first time isn’t the implementation of a feature, but figuring out how to actually contribute code such that the pull request is accepted! But, oh the feeling of accomplishment when your first PR is merged! Go label an issue or two with first-timers-only and *advertise that those issues exist! Walk a newbie a week (or a month) through the process! Document the process, blog and tweet about it and encourage those first timers to do the same! And add this badge to your repo's README: Kent C. Dodds proposed First Timers Only to get new people to make their first contribution. Scott Hanselman blogged about Bringing Kindness Back to Open Source, so it was obvious that we team up and promote these ideas and get more folks involved in open source. Charlotte Spencer created a great twitter account called @yourfirstpr that exists to showcase great issues that a newbie can solve in order to create "Your First PullRequest!" We recommend you follow @yourfirstpr and let them know if your OSS project has a firsttimers only tag and you have open issues that you'll reserve for a new contributor! Empower a First Timer today! We believe - and we hope you do too - that learning how to code, how to think, and how to contribute to open source can empower the next generation of coders and creators. We VALUE first time contributors and we want them to know that everyone started somewhere! Start here!
