The feeling of stepping into unknown is what makes it thrilling and fearful. Feeling that you lack skills to contribute and leaving it behind can make you lose an amazing opportunity. Simple contributions can even make you feel accomplished.
I felt that the dev community is too welcoming and the ideology in my mind, all those assumptions that people would consider that how can this noob be called a dev vanished in seconds when my pull requests got merged.
I feel that the only thing which can stop you from contributing is you.
The key takeaway is that no contribution is big or small , in some way or the other it will create an impact.
This Hacktoberfest 2020 marks my journey into the open source world. Thank you to the organizers for the month long event. If you still haven't contributed what are you waiting for?
