My Hacktoberfest Story

Hello Everyone,

I am a student in the field of computer science engineering. I came across this Hacktoberfest Event while I was learning about the open-source community online. I found that Digital Ocean is conducting an event where everyone around the world can enroll/participate in the open-source community. So, I enrolled in this event and I learned many new skills as first I learned more about the open-source community second, I learned about GitHub which is a web-based version-control and collaboration platform for software developers. I also learned to make my first pull request being a part of this fabulous event. I feel proud to complete this event. Thank You
