Open source is a way for the developers to build their portfolio, experiment with new technologies, and learn in public. Big companies are open sourcing their projects and many open-source startups are also making waves. Getting involved in such projects is definitely a great opportunity to learn and enhance your skills.

Daily is also an open-source project and you can get involved in it. In this post, I am going to walk you through how you can get started with open source by contributing to Daily. 💯

🗞 Daily — Source for Busy Developers

Daily is completely open-source and you can find the source code on GitHub. The linked repo serves as the central repo for the different projects/services which come together to make Daily work.

It is extensively documented. By going through the documentation and following the steps, you can develop a good idea of Daily's architecture and how you can set it up. Below is a quick look at its repo:
