Yes. "The #Fediverse needs more developers."

"I ran through the 42 repos of every site in the Social Media category, adding the notably absent Diaspora, and I get a grand total of 76 active developers. Looking at the commit logs and pretty graphs I’d estimate that putting it in terms of full-time developers, we’re in the single digits."

@tchambers Hi! I am pretty new to this space (the Fediverse), but it is pretty exciting to me and I'd love the chance to contribute. Are there ecosystem-level places where a new dev could contribute? Or are specific projects (fedproxy?) The places that need help the most?

@LEDCoyote Well an obvious place is being a contributor to #mastodon itself or to other big #Fediverse apps, #pleroma #misskey or #pixelfed ...

Another angle would be to dive into other #activitypub dev projects that you find compelling...

Very cool to hear you wanting to contribute...

@tchambers I'll keep exploring the ecosystem and find a place. Thanks for your kind response!

@LEDCoyote @tchambers

There's one place that really needs all the help it can get, and it happens to be the one where the entire foundation of the is being evolved: The Community

socialhub.activitypub.rocks

@humanetech I already joined there, yay! :bongoCat: Been reading and absorbing a lot. Lots of great content

@LEDCoyote@mastodon.social Enjoy your exploration, and feel free to ask, if you have questions about Misskey, which is one of my favourites.
Friendica is also very interesting and powerful.

@norztech Thank you—I appreciate it. And I'll definitely go check out those applications as well. Mastodon is just my gateway drug into the Fediverse 😂

@LEDCoyote @tchambers
As a first exercise for digging the #fediverse & #ActivityPub, you could try and check if #Hubzilla & #BookWyrm are compatible.
