I’ve been getting a fair bit of mesages from developers, who are enthusiastic about DDD and the common ALT.NET toolset, looking for a good project to contribute to – as a means of doing some hands on learning and helping out the community at the same time. I know one place to start might be Jeff Atwood’s open source list, but I was hoping someone might have more specific ideas.
I think one of the challenges is that many open source projects tend to be tools for developers, and as such they are either pretty complicated, or don’t relate well to typical enterprise development. The other problem is that many open source projects are well established and have a large codebase, which makes them significantly harder to get involved with.
Anyways, if anyone knows of a good open source project where a junior developer would be able to understand and contribue, please let us know. (Self-promotions welcomed)
