@JacobMason83 I haven't done this myself yet | nothing I'm aware of right of the bat, it all depends on what you are interested in, what your skills are and other stuff. I know that FCC has had a cool thing where if you complete all their courses/certs you can apply to help an non-profit.
perhaps there's a project you like already that you feel you want to help out with. I've read somewhere that one could start with something simple like fixing a typo in the docs to get the practice of doing a pull request to ease into it.
You could search Github also. I remember I wanted to check out open source projects related to Earth science a year or two ago and it wasn't all that hard to find. I chickened out because I didn't I could help out with anything.
be it UI/UX, language / framework.
Also to have your stuff on GitHub iirc
Everyone's a critic, they say, so don't take anything I saw as Truth.
I took a few moments to check the site and generally I like it!. It's clean, simple, gets the point across. I like the navigation specifically.
A little bit of feedback I'm not a native English speaker but I wonder if the intro is a bit long and I believe I found two typos/grammar issues
"and I acceled at it, and caught on to everything easily, but put in the work to fully understand it as well. "
Also the image on my screen looks a bit squished, I'm not sure..
Something I'd suggest is to perhaps add a paragraph describing what you are interested in/looking for?
Well, I would say that it actually depends on you as a person and on your level of experience. When simply watching something you are not actually building anything. On the other hand it can teach you what's possible and give you ideas on what to create yourself.
if you instead decide to build something from scratch then you will learn-by-doing and that can be a very good of learning something as you will have to solve problems one at the time. The downside is if your idea is too big or if you know too little and will spend more time searching/asking for help than building
