How to search for interesting projects on GitHub?

Studying programming. I would like to read the codes existing projects, watching development from the outside. Probably the most popular hosting projects open source is GitHub. But the search on this site is extremely inconvenient. Also a significant disadvantage that there is no catalog of projects by category (as on sourceforge). In the end, the site, though, and shows off the figure at 8.6 M project, perceived as a big dump. Where and how to find projects? Interested in a small development in the C language, the architecture of which one can comprehend one person and to be trained in programming in fork.

Tried to https://github.com/explore looking for? More or less cataloged dump =)

upd forgot to mention the tab trending on the explore page
I was there and watched.
Showcase - three pages of tiles, each tile a couple of dozen projects. No choice in programming language daaaleko not all of the projects in them.
Trending - page of the two dozen recent projects. Switch day-week-month for some reason is not working. Well, I will not every day to go and check what was updated, and then solve it suit me or not.
Advanced search is kind of buggy and inconvenient thing. Some options not working as it should. - janet.Corke commented on September 19th 19 at 13:11
: you just don't know what you want. I, for instance, make a website on Codeigniter, debt service began to monitor his github, then he started making changes and when he began to delve deeper was very interesting, and most importantly, very useful to see how problems are solved in a professional opensource projects. So choose 3-4 projects in the language that you like, try to understand the code, not just to read, and right to understand how the code works and you will tighten. - maegan_OConnell66 commented on September 19th 19 at 13:14

No need to look on github.
You just have to choose an interesting work in the Internet, and then view it on github
: Oh, and you think github use for HelloWorld? - janet.Corke commented on September 19th 19 at 13:28
So I ask where online to find them? Here, for example, on sourceforge, find a project, and there is only a link to github. - janet.Corke commented on September 19th 19 at 13:13
: what kind of projects you like? For Example Laravel? Write Laravel github Google, come in, make a fork, the rules in your copy, make a pull request. It's simple. - maegan_OConnell66 commented on September 19th 19 at 13:16
You think I don't know how to enter in your search string the name of the project that I someone suggested, for example, your Lavarel?
The problem is to many projects on the criteria to select what is suitable. ie the name of what I'm looking for is unknown to me.
"Go there, do not know where, bring it, don't know what" (Russian folk tale) - Cortez commented on September 19th 19 at 13:19
why not help projects that are unknown to you, do not like and which you do not use? - janet.Corke commented on September 19th 19 at 13:22
Now for me all projects are "unknown" and like that, and what there is yet to be determined. What I use for example the Firefox browser, I just can't understand at this stage, and especially something to help them. - Missouri.Hoeg commented on September 19th 19 at 13:25
I think there is something between HelloWorld and project the type of browser or player, used by millions of people. - Missouri.Hoeg commented on September 19th 19 at 13:31
: Actually no. - janet.Corke commented on September 19th 19 at 13:34
: there is not much difference. Major projects actually tend to have good code and architecture than is known to nobody. This makes them easier to understand, and easier to obtain. - earnestine.Smitham72 commented on September 19th 19 at 13:37

There sort of is. Select "most starts" or "most forks".
And if I as a beginner do not just have the project"most starts" or "most forks"? It is usually large, complex projects, but I first need something small. - janet.Corke commented on September 19th 19 at 13:15
