Actually, I haven't coded once in 2019 but I did code in 2018. I even got a hacktoberfest t-shirt for contributing to my first open source project. I don't identify as a coder but I know HTML and was able to contribute and that was pretty cool.
Being a legit open source contributor. You can check out my DEV profile and see the contributor badge as proof! I also designed the badge and deserve credit for that because that's what I actually do around here 😄
I'm writing this post in markdown. I think it's pretty cool I even know what markdown is and I love it.
I hope the whole software industry becomes as kind and awesome as the community here on DEV.
