This looks awesome, that video is slick! I looked into getting into open source programming recently and people said a good thing is to check on GitHub for projects with certain tags i.e. “good first issue”, and there were some websites dedicated to finding them i.e. here. That seems fairly similar to what you’re thinking launching here. As it’s a prototype, you might not have it fully fleshed out, but how would people add projects to the app? Would it be accessible via a browser? I think this could be an amazing resource for bringing EAs together on projects, especially ones who don’t have to time available to start something themselves or trawl through various places looking for something to do to help :)
Thanks a lot!
If I was to flesh this out further, it would likely involve a way of proposing EA projects that we could then curate. The form would likely be accessible via the browser, but yes, it’s currently just a very modest proof of concept.
I’ve been seeing you around and have loved some of your posts! The project is meant to try and find both highly skilled but also beginners in EA. I’m not sure what direction it needs to go in, as I kind of want to talk to the people that have proposed this idea in the past to try and get their thoughts on what it should look like. I should probably get in contact with them soon.
