About The ReadME Project
Coding is usually seen as a solitary activity, but it’s actually the world’s largest community effort led by open source maintainers, contributors, and teams. These unsung heroes put in long hours to build software, fix issues, field questions, and manage communities.
The ReadME Project is part of GitHub’s ongoing effort to amplify the voices of the developer community. It’s an evolving space to engage with the community and explore the stories, challenges, technology, and culture that surround the world of open source.
Recognize developers working behind the scenes and help open source projects get the resources they need.
Nominate inspiring developers and projects you think we should feature in The ReadME Project.
The GitHub Stars program offers impactful developers an opportunity to showcase their work, reach more people, and shape the future of GitHub.
