My Open Source Contribution using JavaScript to Open Sauced ft. Rizel Scarlett

Hey Everyone!

I'm back with another blog post. This time its about my experience contributing to my first contribution with Open Sauced @saucedopen (https://opensauced.pizza/). Open sauced is a platform where it provides structured onboarding for new contributors to open source.

My good friend Rizel Scarlett who is a Developer Advocate @ Github challenged me to take on an open source problem. The problem was to fix the Avatar relative date on the PostList and PostGrid.

I had a lot of fun working on this issue because I got to use a new tool called Days.JS. Days.JS is minimalist Javascript library that parses, validates, manipulates, and displays dates and times for modern browsers.

If you want to see more on how we tackle this isse please see Part 1 and Part 2 of the video below!

Also if you looking to collaborate with Rizel please reach out to her via Linkedin (https://www.linkedin.com/in/rizel-bobb-semple/) or Twitter @blackgirlbytes
