Hacktoberfest 2023 Pledge: My Journey, Goals and Projects


Hey there, DEV community! 👋 I'm Eduard, a passionate web application developer hailing from Romania, with 5 years of experience in crafting web solutions using technologies like React, Next.js and GraphQL. While I can talk tech and web dev endlessly, I've also got a creative side — I love to sketch and immerse myself in video games, from online shooters like Counter-Strike 2 to the latest releases in the gaming world.
As someone deeply ingrained in the world of web development, I've always believed in the power of open source and the collaborative spirit of the developer community. Hacktoberfest, to me, is an opportunity to give back, learn from others, and be part of something bigger.


I first heard about this amazing event last year through the buzzing tech community. The idea of contributing to open source projects and collaborating with developers from all corners of the world intrigued me. It was a chance to not only enhance my skills but also give back to the community that had nurtured my passion for coding.
So, here I am, motivated and excited to dive into Hacktoberfest for the second year. Whether you're a seasoned coder or just starting your coding journey like I once did, remember that Hacktoberfest welcomes everyone. It's a celebration of open source, creativity, and the magic that happens when developers unite for a common cause.


Collaboration and Learning
I pledge to actively seek out opportunities to collaborate with fellow developers from diverse backgrounds and skill levels. Whether it's fixing a bug, improving documentation, or adding a new feature, I'm here to learn from others and share my knowledge.

Giving Back to the Community
One of my primary motivations for participating in Hacktoberfest is to give back to the community that has nurtured my growth as a developer. I'm committed to making meaningful contributions to open source projects that benefit others. It's a way of saying "thank you" to the countless developers who have shared their knowledge and code with me.

Exploring New Territories
Hacktoberfest is also an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone. I'm open to exploring projects and technologies I haven't worked with before. Whether it's a new programming language, framework, or domain, I'm excited to broaden my skills and embrace the adventure.

Welcoming Contributions to My Projects
In addition to contributing to other open source projects, I'm eager to play the role of a maintainer during Hacktoberfest. I have a new and exciting project in mind, and I'm inviting fellow developers to join me in shaping it. Whether you're an experienced developer or just starting out, I'm committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for contributors.
I also have a few existing projects that could use some love and enhancements. I'm inviting developers to collaborate with me on these projects, whether it's fixing bugs, optimizing performance, or adding new features.

This week I will continue posting new articles about these projects in order to keep everyone up to date.
