Hi,

I am a java programmer with 7 years of development experience. I wish to join some open source project to learn more and to contribute to some projects that are under development.

I have most of my experience in core java and Middleware programming. How and where should I search for such projects.

Thanks

Hi, Ravi,

The best way to join an open source project is to start your own. GitHub is a great place for interaction.

There are so many unmet software needs that would greatly benefit from a pre-written solution and make other people's lives easier.

Think about what it could be.

Think about Hadoop - it was once only a figment of someone's imagination. Now it is the de facto standard for parallel computing in Java.

So just set your mind to it, come up with an interesting idea, and soon you will have others joining in.

With best regards,

Anton.
