  • The beginner's guide to Open Source contribution
    dev.to | 2021-03-14
    While in college, I had heard about this amazing month long celebration for open-source called hacktoberfest where if you make a certain number of contributions to any open-source repository(ies) and your changes are accepted (via pull-requests), you could get swags like T-shirts, stickers and other things. This was interesting for me as:
  • What is Open Source, and why is it important?
    dev.to | 2021-03-09
    The upcoming blogs will focus on Open Source Guide, Open Source Education and my experience participating in the Hacktoberfest 2020 Challenge. Meanwhile you can learn how to Get Started with contributing to Open Source Projects.
  • Personal branding as a Software Engineer
    dev.to | 2021-02-22
    Most software engineers look for growth. They want to become senior-level, earn more money and have a more easy life. Or they want to grow to develop their solution. There are so many things. But what is important to understand is that most of these things can just be done within a team. Creating a startup is incredibly hard. You would have to focus on multiple fronts like Marketing, Sales, Product, and Engineering. The complexity is immense and working with other people is important. To get other people to work with you, you must know them. One opportunity would be GitHub. Be open to contributions and work with other people. For example, during Hacktoberfest, you could prepare your projects for contribution. I will write a detailed guide on that. But in short: Create a good README for contributors, that is targeted a bit differently, create easy-to-understand issues, and stay open for any request. During hacktoberfest just tag your repository and issues with the required issue and you will soon receive many contributions. Ask for feedback but also connect to the people. Ask for a follow on Twitter/GitHub/LinkedIn just to keep in touch. These opportunities will pay off at some point. And even if not, you are passively building an audience that will help you to find cool positions since you never know where the people will end up working at, maybe Google, Netflix, or a startup you like.

    And the number of contributors grew to maybe 60 which was a big deal to me! And then Hacktoberfest started, and for those of you who don't know, it's an annual event for developers that encourage contributing to open source projects by offering swag as a prize for your contributions. Developers all around the world participate and it is a big event for everyone.
  • First contribution to open source, hacktoberfest !
    dev.to | 2020-11-08
    Unfortunately I didn’t officially complete the Hacktoberfest challenge due to an ”intented behaviour” which now prohibits certain repositories from being eligible.
