I just started my web development journey about 4 months ago and I heard about HACKTOBERFEST. I followed up on it and found out how essential it is to the community. I have since prepared for it and was eager to make my first pull request which i did. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or if you have never made a pull request, getting started is easy as it gets.
Here are a few tips i put together for beginners who want to make their first pull request:
- First thing you need to do is to make a github account if you don't already have one.
- There are tons of open source projects on github that you can contribute to. It does not have to be a big contribution. Just contribute in some way, for instance, you can update a readme file. NOTE:- There are some rules you need to follow regarding making pull requests. You can find them here.
