I am a junior dev and recent bootcamp grad trying to get my feet wet with rails. I have asked a couple devs I know that mentioned most people in the community that are worth their weight contribute to open source projects consistently, and create / maintain existing packages to become a part of the rails community.
I want to be a part of the community, contribute, and become a better rails developer. So I have a few questions i’m hoping people can clear up.
Where can I find open source projects, or how can I find “beginner” issues to submit PR’s to?
How can I create useful libraries, or where can I contribute to existing libraries?
Is it true these kind of contributions will help me find work as a dev?
Is anyone willing to connect with me as a mentor and help guide me through some of this?
Thanks for your time
