Just like the favourite open source projects you admire, you too can start your open source project with the aim of solving real-life problems or something that interests you.

In my experience with open source, I realized that so many people find it challenging to start their projects. While there are some theoretical resources out there, you rarely find practical guidance.

In this workshop, I will not only show but also guide you through creating your first open-source project. Here's a quick overview of what will be covered:

  • What an Open Source Project is.
  • How to create a project on GitHub
  • Setting up your repository (Licenses, Readme, Contributing guide, etc.)
  • How to establish branding for your project
  • Best marketing practices for your project
