Every contributor makes an impact on the open source ecosystem. We want to highlight that, encourage it, and guide contributors in best practices as open source community members. From July 23rd - October 31st, we're creating positive and encouraging space for contributors to immerse themselves in the world of open source development, creating spaces for collaboration, learning, and contribution to diverse projects.  Over this hundred days challenge, we can all make a meaningful impact, form connections, and leave a lasting mark on technology.

We're very excited to launch #100DaysOfOSS next week! With this challenge, we hope to help contributors enhance their skills, expand their abilities, and gain practical experience over 100 days, as well as support maintainers, onboard more contributors into open source, and expand the OSS community. With a focus on open source software (OSS), we encourage contributors of all technical backgrounds to immerse themselves in the world of collaborative development and engage with a supportive community.
