You've been benefiting from the use of open source projects all year. Now is the time to say thanks to the maintainers of those projects, and a little birdy tells me that they love receiving pull requests!
There are lots of ways to get involved in an open source project: improving documentation, helping fix existing issues and bugs, improving code quality and test coverage, or adding missing features.
We've prepared a special page, where you can find some information about contributing. If you are new to open source, please take a look.
Contributing to open source projects is also a great way to build your profile in the community and improve your CV.
It's really easy to get started. Even small contributions can be really valuable to a project.
