Want to catch up on how the challenge has gone so far? Here’s my first post, my first 10 days post, and my complete work log on GitHub.
- Tribute Page
- Survey Form
- Product Landing Page (particularly happy with this one)
- Technical Documentation Page
Between Days 17-19 I learned about Hacktoberfest for the first time and got super excited about it. The challenge is to make 5 pull requests on GitHub during October. And you get a free t-shirt! When I first read about the challenge, I was pretty sure I didn’t have the skills for it. I’m so happy I pushed through and did it anyway. I learned a ton about GitHub and contributing to the open source community. I’m also happy to say that some of my PR’s were real contributions and not just adding my name to a list like a lot of other newbies (though I definitely did some of that too).
Overall, I’m pretty happy with these 10 days. I definitely pushed myself beyond my comfort zone and it feels good to be building new projects.
