"How do I get started contributing to open source? What are some good entry-level tasks to work on?"
These are questions I am often asked, so here's the answer for everyone to read:
Scratch your own itches. Find bugs that are causing you problems, conspicuously missing features you would find useful, and implement them - in literally any free/open-source software you're using. Don't worry about not being familiar with the codebase or programming language or whatever, just solve one problem at a time.
Try this: next time you go to report a bug, report it, and immediately start working on a patch which fixes the problem.
Scratching your own itches is the best source of motivation and maximizes your productivity.
Often that means not contributing to my projects at all, if you're asking how to get started with a specific project. Maybe you like it because it's flawless 😉 (hah!), in which case it wouldn't need your help anyway. Go fix something which is bugging you in another project. Spread the contributor wealth around and eventually it'll come back to my projects, too.

An artificial eye that is better than human eyes has been invented. It's called an "electrochemical" eye but what makes it work is also that it's hemispherical. Commercial cameras work with something called a charge-coupled device (CCD) and is manufactured using semiconductor microfabrication processes, which means it's always flat. In addition to being hemispherical, this system doesn't use a CCD for light detection, it uses a perovskite nanowire array. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/new-artificial-eye-mimics-may-outperform-human-eyes

Depois de 10+ tentativas de subir um CSV para atrelar um SKU a um serviço, finalmente consegui.
Enterprise Software é uma desgraça.
Ou as funcionalidades são bem restritas;
Ou não há boa abstração das funcionalidades a nível de usuario;
Ou não há boa documentação;
Ou é a VTEX e é os três junto.
E digo isso como um usuário técnico, coitado do lojista que tem que aprender a navegar numa UI super mal feita, onde UX é sempre um afterthought.
