First open-source experience during Hacktoberfest 2020

How did I Hacktoberfest my October

I have joined Hacktoberfest 2020 only because I have reached out to a friend who I have met during WarsawJS workshops. The reason why I have reached out was to congratulate him on the anniversary of working in xFAANG and ask how is life.
As it turned out, my friend is well and quite happy about his career and asked if I will be taking part in Hacktoberfest 2020. I had no idea Hacktoberfest exists, so I checked the website and so it started :D


All contributions were possible thanks to the help of Marcin Hagmajer and Yonatan Kra :)

  1. First open-source contribution in my career
  2. Longest Pull Request with many attempts to accomplish the objective :D
  3. Github feature request issue template PR
  4. Github bug issue template PR


Overall, my Hacktoberfest experience was challenging but enjoyable. Especially when my changes were merged and Yonatan has used them in his programming tasks :)

This experience brought new friendship and new experience and I will definitely participate in Hacktoberfest 2021!

Anyone else planning to join next year?
