Getting started in Open Source development

slaterslater profile image Anthony Slater ・1 min read

I'm Anthony - a computer programming student living in Toronto, Canada. During my first semester, I remember circling the Open Source Development courses as ones I knew I wanted to take. Each semester I would take all the requisite classes in C++, SQL, Java & Javascript as stepping stones towards the goal of Open Source Development. Now - here I am in my final semester and I feel wholly unprepared and out of my depth.

It's my understanding that the imposter syndrome is pretty normal for beginner programmers and it's my hope that over the next few months I'm able to shake it.

I've been taking a look at RxDB

It looks really interesting, as I've had some aspirations to build some mobile apps that could leverage a feature like state change subscriptions. I don't know if I'll be able to contribute anything meaningful to this repo, but it looks to be something I could use in future project of mine.
