Discussion on: How did you feel after your first open source PR?

Even after being a Dev for a long time it was intimidating to submit a PR to any open source project as it felt like someone else's code and not so used to process, and most times forked the repo, make changes and keep it to myself.

Then found a GitHub repo called firstcontributions where it is okay to make mistakes and tried few PRs and got acquainted. This is a good start for anyone like me waiting to try how it works and then make the actual contribution.

The most proud moment was when I submitted my PR to umbraco and the team gave me a contributor badge.
