    Kidle is a kubernetes idling feature to automatically idle or wakeup workloads.

    I found this little size project named Kidle, a Kubernetes operator to idle or wakeup resources with a good-first-issue! After posting my first comment saying I was interested, the stress invaded my body. Nicolas, the maintainer was asking for my opinion (Am I legitimate to have an opinion on your tool ?). I take my time to search, check the code and give what I assumed the best answers I could give at this point. Discussing with Nicolas was great, after a few comments, I felt I was already learning new things: suggestions display, check connexe projects, github discussions conventions, acronyms. After agreeing on the scope of the issue, the fun began: let’s code! For the record, it took me three weeks to test and push a final pull request.

    🔥 ~6x faster, stricter, configurable, extensible, and beautiful drop-in replacement for golint

    The day after, I talked about the Hacktoberfest to Salvador (architect colleague and my technical/career unofficial mentor). He is known for contributing to revive a Golang linter. We decided that I could contribute by solving these 3 issues (2 new rules and add a docker image to the release). Since this moment, I have been coding every available hour I had. It felt so reviving to spend time coding on new projects, rewarding to solve issues for people actually using the tool. Here are all my contributions.
