Ever since I finished my Outreachy Internship, I have been contributing to several open-source projects here and there. Even so, whenever I was asked on if I am currently contributing to any open-source project I often said no. I said no not because I wanted to be dishonest, but because at that specific point I felt what I contributed was insignificant. Can you imagine?
I decided to reflect my contributions in a reverse motion and think of how far I have come in this past year.
An open-source journey
– Learn X in Y minutes : Fixing some typos sample contribution
Last year I wanted to take part in Hacktoberfest, I was trying to find ways to get started. I notice the Learn X in Y minutes had some documentation in Greek language however, there were a few typos. I decided to fix several of them. Do you know a unique language? Maybe you can help an open-source project in close captioning, documentation, or translation.
– Adding Consistency: Hugo
Sometimes contributing is not overly complicated, things such as adding consistency to a documentation can be very beneficial as it makes it easier to read.
