Contribute to OpenSource & impact millions

OpenSource Software is eager to benefit from professional designers, researchers, and product people to help them take their project to another level. ​Most of them lacked proper guidance for non engineers to be able to contribute. Things changed though....

Contribution to OpenSource software got a lot easier – all through a simple, yet powerful folder in their project.
