OpenHatch is an open source web app for helping people get involved in open source projects. We do that through web-based interactive tutorials called "training missions;" a browsing tool for bitesize bugs in open source projects called the "volunteer opportunity finder"; and an online mentor/mentee matching tool.
Goal of the OpenHatch project
OpenHatch’s goal is to make the free software/open source community more welcoming to newcomers. To do this, we provide curricula and logistical support for running “Intro to Open Source” workshops, a website with open source tools, “training missions” and a volunteer opportunity finder, and several other projects in progress.
