A collection of guides for and by first-timers
First-timers guide is a guide to encourage more people to venture into open-source.

Anyone, literally anyone can contribute to the repository
It's quite simple. Just write an article in MarkDown format about a topic you know; the article should be between 100-150 words and
easy to read for a newbie. And then pull a request to start.

First-timers-guide will be thrilled to participate or collaborate with any society or group that promotes open-source anywhere in the world. And we would be really happy to help you guys- anything for open-source!
