Good First Bug

This is a platform for anyone to get exposure to FLOSS contributions. The best way to start contributing to FLOSS is by attending beginner's bugs. Even though there is lots of content available on the Internet , many fail to accomplish fixing the first bug due various starting troubles. The 'Good First Bug' initiative to address such gaps.

FSMK wants to host Good First Bug mainly in colleges. However, depending on the demand or need we could plan to host this in other common spaces as well.
