You are welcome to contribute to any repository in any of these organizations,
or to any other Jenkins-related repository on GitHub.
If you adopt Jenkins in your own open-source projects (e.g. Jenkins Pipeline or Configuration as Code),
it counts as well!
If you are a newcomer contributor, we have prepared a list of featured projects/components where you will get a warm welcome.
All these projects have newbie-friendly tasks, contributing guidelines, and active maintainers
who have committed to assist contributors and to quickly review pull requests.
The list of featured projects will be updated during the event,
and we will make sure to create more newbie-friendly tasks if needed.
There are many events being organized by open-source communities.
