Welcome, we're very glad to have you! Open source Racket projects are scattered all over the place, but here are some good ways to find actively maintained and hopefully accessible projects that might interest you:
- Watch some talks from recent RacketCons, especially the most recent one (which, conveniently, was barely a week and a half ago). A lot of talks are on interesting and wildly unusual open source projects, and as a bonus most presenters give out their contact information so people can reach out if they have questions or might be interested in contributing. You can find information on the most recent RacketCon at con.racket-lang.org including video and livestream recordings, talk descriptions, and slides for each talk. Info for previous RacketCons are available at con.racket-lang.org/2016/, con.racket-lang.org/2015/, etc. Alas we don't yet have individual prettily-edited videos for each talk at RacketCon 2017; they're only viewable via the saved livestream on youtube. - Search the official package catalog at pkgs.racket-lang.org for packages whose descriptions sound interesting and which are hosted on GitHub / GitLab / some other platform that makes it easy to contribute. Every package includes links to its docs and repostiory, as well as a contact email address for whoever maintains it. If you're not looking for a package in a particular problem domain your best bet is probably to restrict your search to only packages that build, have passing tests, and have docs. Decent issue / todo lists in the project repo are a nice bonus. - Browse around the front page of the online Racket documentation at docs.racket-lang.org. The online docs includes all docs from all successfully built user packages at pkgs.racket-lang.org, grouped into top level categories. Once you find some docs for a project that's interesting, it's (hopefully!) not difficult to find the package containing those docs by searching pkgs.racket-lang.org. - Hop in the Racket IRC (#racket on freenode) or the Racket Slack channel (signup at racket-slack.herokuapp.com) and ask around about what people are working on. I'm sure many folks will be delighted to talk about their projects. And this mailing list isn't a bad place to ask either. - If you want to try something more ambitious, you can take a peek at the Github repos in the "racket" organization (https://github.com/racket). These are all (or mostly? not sure) packages in the "main distribution", meaning they ship directly with Racket and don't have to be installed by users. Contributing to these packages can be a little trickier because sometimes they depend on the latest version of Racket's core, meaning you'll have to compile Racket's core from source. Also, all throughout this month Github and DigitalOcean are hosting an online event called Hacktoberfest. By signing up at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/ you'll get a free tshirt mailed to you if you submit four or more pull requests to any public repositories on Github before October ends. It doesn't matter how large each pull request is and a pull request to your own repo counts. And speaking from experience, they're very comfortable shirts. > -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Racket Users" group.
