Hello World!! This is my first post on Dev.to and I'm gonna share my experience about the first Hacktoberfest I joined.
Now coming back to topic, last month I was watching random videos on YouTube where all of a sudden an Ad for the Hacktoberfest appeared. It sparked my curiosity, so I began researching it, and I was astounded to learn that this Fest has been held on a yearly basis for the past eight years. So I started looking for projects, and to be honest, I had no idea how Open-Source worked, so I chose beginner-friendly projects. I made a total of 9 PRs out of which only 5 got approved.
Today I have placed my order for the T-shirt and also claimed my badge on DEV for completing Hacktoberfest 2021!
Conclusion: I've learned about the Open-Source and I will definitely be taking parts in different projects from now on. I think its really a great because you get to interact with different developers and learn from them while helping them.
