4th Time Hacktoberfest Contributor


Well, I have been working as a Software Dev for almost 4 years now. I often participate in various open-source programs and contribute to many open-source projects that pique my interest. This is the 4th time I am participating in Hacktoberfest and I look forward to contributing meaningfully once again to the best of my knowledge.

Highs and Lows

I always try to contribute both code and documentation in various open issues for different projects. This year also I came across several new projects such as DocsGPT,, Hyperswitch and Bytebase, etc.

I tried to curate some blogs on some of these tools and also worked on some of their available tickets. Understanding the code base and running the code base locally always was a challenge and that is something I learned and executed properly towards the end.

Another challenge was to make sure that everything worked properly after doing a code change and testing it thoroughly which I did.

There were highs and lows but the overall experience was very rewarding.


After working on several projects this Hacktoberfest, I have a wider knowledge of different OSS projects out there and have experience in utilizing these tools for different tasks as and when required in my personal and professional endeavors.

Networking and knowing many different people who share the same vision and goal was another plus that I acquired during Hacktoberfest 2023.

Cheers to Hacktoberest 2023!
