It's been almost a week since I dropped my side project and started working on open source and and I'm really loving it!!! 🥰
After hearing about Digital Ocean's Hacktoberfest from some developers, I couldn't wait to get started and make my mark in the open source world!
About a week later I finished 4 pull requests and now I'm waiting to get the special-edition free shirt. 🙃
I didn't want to stop there. I decided to test out my React skills by creating a simple Emoji-Search with React. And that was super fun.
Of course, that leads to other important responsibilities too. I had to review a decent amount of pull requests and issues which took up some time. However, I'm happy with this. I know that I can help improve the experience of others and do the same for other developers' projects.
I can't wait for the next week, and the next week, and the next week. 😁
This is gonna be an awesome ride 🚀 and I'm glad to have your support.
