The first time I contributed to open source was during one of GitHub's Hacktoberfests. I've always wanted to contribute to open source, but was way too afraid. Though, I did wanna have that Hacktoberfest T-Shirt so, so badly. 😅
I was deep-diving into GitHub Repos looking for non-coding issues (as I was still too afraid to do coding contributions that time) like ... ehm yeah, crazy. 😅 In the end, I spend to whole days doing the german translation for Cboard (a web application for children and adults with speech and language impairment, aiding communication with pictures and text-to-speech).
And yep, I eventually got that shirt - which I'm still very proud of, and which will always be reminiscent of my first contribution ever. 😅 🧡
