Amina Adewusi


This is the story of how I struggled to get my first Junior Developer role and turned to Open Source projects looking for help. We’ll learn how the best GitHub repos are attracting new contributors, why developers early in their coding journey can struggle to get to grips with a new repo and how you avoid these stumbling blocks to create a vibrant open source project.
