Hacktoberfest Final Week


Hello, I hope you all had a crazy Hacktober fest this month. A lot of coding and working day-night. For me, it has been a great experience. I met a lot of good developers and issues to get started. I don't know if I did everything the right way or not. However, I had a lot of fun learning experiences.

Finding Projects

It is not easy to find the right project to start. It took hours to look for one project where a contribution is possible. I used bookmarks to hold on to issues. This week I got stuck with two issues one being major and one being shorter.


This issue is related to adding the feature to the live website. It is a weather website that has a background simulation of different weather types. It already has sun & rainy weather. I searched about the article if I will be able to do it, then asked the developer to let me work on this. Instantly, I was assigned the task with another assignee. I wanted to make snow season stimulation. Do check out the git link to contribute to this Weather Venure
The second issue, I wanted to start with Seneca's open-source involvement. So, here I started with a small issue to our blog collection application Telescope.


I believe pre-requisites are very helpful to set up environments but, I don't know how still get some silly errors all the time. So, the best way to solve this situation is to ask the developer for help. It solves my error always and hope it does the same for you too.

Learning Experience

This work on i worked on node.js project which was more of involved with css and little bit of javascript. However, It was great initiative to work on different projects this hactoberfest. My next project is telescope to setup and be ready to contribute to our application.

I have great conversations with my co-developers. They are very helpful and it builds great environment to work on. The appreciation boots your energy to do more work. My pull request was not submitted due to my wrongful attempt to issue, but the way it was handled was well.
