Download Open Source Software on the FOSSASIA site or through your repository and try it out

The first step of joining a project is always to download the software and try it out. The FOSSASIA community already works together with many developer and Linux distributions.

Test Open Source Software

We believe users can be valuable contributors by using and testing free software and by offering their feedback. We invite you to test components from free software repositories for bugs. Please check out the bug tracking systems at sites like Sourceforge, Launchpad and Github.

Do you speak more than one language? Most FOSS projects are 100% volunteer translated, which means you can be part of a translation team translating software and documentation thousands of people will use. You can join the translation team of LXDE for example at:

- The mailing list of the translation project at

https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/lxde-i18n
