Hacktoberfest 2020

What I Learned From Hacktoberfest

This year I participated for the first time in Hacktoberfest and it was amazing experience. I completed the challenge by making at least 4 PR and the best part was that all my PRs were merged.

It's a kick start to open source contribution and now looking forward to explore some more repos for contributions.

Overall it's a great learning experience.
