It all started with a fleeting idea and a tweet. Wait, don't all projects start this way?
So, with 80% of respondents giving a positive reaction to the idea, I started to plan the project.
I started thinking about the goals, why I was building it, and how it could have a big picture impact. So, here's the main goal:
Have fun & meet other devs while learning and helping each other learn.
There is a secondary piece. I want to make it easy for people to take their first steps into open source contributions. I included a section on contributing in the
readme.md. This should make it a bit easier for someone new to contributing on GitHub.

The bot was to be built with Python and Tweepy.
Previously, I made the Vets Who Code Bot. So, I already had some experience with Tweepy.
This bot was a little different because I was looking to
update_status. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to do this and made it out like it was going to be super complex. It turned out to be a rather tiny piece of code that actually does the work.
Yup, that's pretty much it. There are a few other lines and some importing files to other files, but that's the statement that does the job.
- Work on automating this follow-up tweet that I've been putting on each question.
- Add more questions
- Write a Dev.to post detailing the steps to making open source contributions with GitHub
Here's the Code Questions Bot
