I remember joining to make a PR on a WordPress plugin! I had no idea what I was doing and didn't end up using GH professionally until 2017.

This is a cool project. 🙂 Although for some, this is not necessarily their "open source birthday", as there were other platforms existing before GitHub, such as SourceForge. 😄

Wow, don't overcapitalize my profile based on my Octocat birthday! Yes, I've created my Github account in 2012. But, I'm a designer and I'm currently learning to React! So based on that I'm a Jr. developer!!! ;)
