Hello everybody. Are there any open source contributors around here? I have never contributed to an open source project but I would really love to get myself involved in this.

I have no ideea on how to get started though, any advice?

P.S.: My main programming language is PHP and I use Silex/Symfony for developing apps.

    I guess the place to start would be to find a project that you like, and check the repository on GitHub/wherever to see if there are any open bugs/issues you could solve.

    People will love you if you make sure to include tests in your pull requests. ☺
