Hi Everyone,

I've been looking for good javascript projects to join. Are there any projects you can advice?
I've researched a lot. (with the help of Google. :D) But would also love to get advices from people who have/had worked at an opensource project here. I would also love to hear your experiences.

Anyone who'd love to share?

I'd say jQuery UI. It's a great project, much used over the web, with lots of functionalities and it's has a great community.

I never joined the group, but I really respect and appreciate the job they're doing.

Thanks AleMonteiro,

jQuery (|UI) & QUnit was on my list, since it's an active project with a lot of quirks. I consider it a learning haven; I'm gonna learn a lot with the community for sure if a join.

Thanks for your advice.

If you've ever done any Node.js, there's an abundance of open-source modules out there that need to be tested, have features added and get bug fixes. Just pull one off GitHub and look through the readme for any noted issues/bugs.

If you haven't got any experience with Node, as AleMonteiro said, jQuery UI is a great project to get involved in.

Another great one is Brackets.io. It's maintained by Adobe but is completely open-source. It is built entirely in HTML, CSS and JavaScript and is always looking for people to provide bug fixes and new features.

How can I find a beginner-sociable mission? What attributes should I be searching for? What are advice signs that a mission might not be the right fit? Are there any tools out there to help session people with open source project?
