Open Humans is participating in the 2018 Global Sprint that’s organized by Mozilla on May 10th and 11th. The Global Sprint is a two-day collaborative hackathon that takes place around the globe - both at physical locations as well as remotely via the web.
We’re thrilled that you’re interested in contributing to the Open Humans ecosystem. As a platform that connects people and their data with researchers and projects that want to work with people and their data, Open Humans is pretty decentralized. As such there is not a single repository that you can contribute to, but rather a collection of repositories that you can contribute to.
Below you will find links to different projects that you can contribute to, along
with some first overviews which skill sets are needed and our estimated
level of difficulty. Our GitHub issues can be found in the
