Contribute Beyond Code: Open Source for Everyone

Developers are often encouraged to contribute to open source. If you don’t consider yourself a developer, it can feel daunting to start on the journey to contributing.

Directional Channels in Go

Go’s channels provide a primitive for typed, synchronous message passing. Combined with goroutines, they form the backbone of Go’s CSP-inspired concurrency model.
