HACKTOBER FEST 20' Completed..

This year Contribution to hacktoberfest was my first Hacktober contribution. The journey was great! It was more of learning than contributing, amidst the process, learnt about opensource, github contributions, making PRs and getting them merged. Most importantly the issues arised were a complete guide to enter into open source, each issue was interesting and i learned a lot. So overall road involved learning, researching, and coding and finally contributing.
I would like to thank Dev, DigitalOcean and Intel to give this opportunity and hope to contribute again the following year.
