Cross-posting from #opensource. I'm new and hopefully doing this right.

A good way to start is to look for projects with issues labeled "good first issue". You may then explore the source code and ask your questions as comments in such issues

But if you have no experience programming real-world stuff, I suggest you start with pet projects until you grasp the basics, and then look for projects to contribute

Moin Benjamin! 🙂 Might be a good idea to have a look at O'Reilly's 'Head first Kotlin'. Have Fun! Best regards Alex

Thanks, Alex! I've already gone through that as a textbook in my courses. I've got a number of little projects from my Kotlin courses under my belt. I'm just looking for something more real-world/production-level.
