Getting involved with open source can be daunting to begin with. Trying to find the right project can be a challenge. This app provides a curated list of issues ideal for beginners, or you can submit your project if you think it would be ideal for beginners
Getting involved with open source software can be daunting to begin with. Trying to find the right project - and an easy problem to solve can be a challenge. This app has a curated list of easy fixes to some well known open source projects. You can browser the list, or pick one at random to help you find something to work on.
There's also support for submitting user projects that are in need of help (and a good starting point for beginners). A list of these is available on the site
This entry would be used by someone who was looking to get started with OSS, but didn't know where to start, they could come to this app, pick something at random or browse the list. Hopefully they would find something that interested them
All of the interaction is done with websockets, so the browser your using needs to support them. The stock android browser doesn't work. But Chrome on android does (it should on iphone but haven't tested it). It works on firefox and chrome on a desktop/laptop

Thanks for your comments. I ran out of time with the design. But hopefully I've learned enough to make a decent job of it next time.
