Starting open-source contribution. Need help


#1

I am trying to get into contributing to open source. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out with my doubts. Remember, now an expert was once a beginner. I am a beginner aiming high asking for some help. Thank you

What type of project? I prefer to start small, like collaborating on a small individual website, maybe with a user-login format, or just educational. I do not yet have a portfolio, anyway.

All the open-source projects I know of consist of building huge code libraries, like PHP and MySQL. I am not skilled enough to contribute to those in a meaningful manner.
