It feels weird to me when someone preaches about open-source having done little less than nothing themselves.

Shouldn't you have good experience in open-source before telling someone yeah it's pretty easy and they end up feeling it's not because let's be honest it's not that easy it takes time.

Firstly, the main goal of this article is to encourage people who want to contribute to open source irrespective of their experience(because os is all about it) and just start their journey.(And I think everything is easy if you put your efforts , stay consistent but the same thing seems difficult when you don't put effort or you dont' stay consistent).

And secondly, I also feel uncomfortable when I see people who cracked GSOC or in IITs believes that they are the only person in this world who know all about open source and always like to see people who have the same tag. But the time has now changed buddy. Don't worry, you will get it one day eventually. Good Luck👍

Read the title and lemme know how you interpret it before stalking someone rather looking at your GitHub Contributions.

Secondly if you want to target my achievements go ahead 😂 it only made me think less of you now.

In the game of stalking, I think you won🤣
And if you consider GSOC as your achievement then brother i think you haven't explored open source and for the sake of GSOC, you just managed to grow your GitHub profile.I think you have to first come to ground and clear your thoughts about open source rather than bragging everywhere GSOC as your achievement😉🤙
Amd yes talking about the title, who really wants to learn something, he/she just talks about the content rather than proving him/her a god of Open Source. Good luck buddy👍
