My first PR merged!

I have wanted to start contributing to open source projects for a long time. So recently I pushed myself to do my first pull request.

To start with, I decided to start with something small. My contribution is about translating project documentation to Russian language. Not so much work, not difficult, but I am so proud of myself. I know that it is just a beginning )

That's an excellent start. Documentation is something that's often lacking on OS projects. I guarantee that more developers will use (and maybe chip in on) the project because they read your Russian documentation.

Thank you to committing to documentation. Often overlooked but needed work. :) Seriously... so many times I had to look at documentation for something.

I've also done some PRs on documentation too so thank fellow documentation person.

Cool stuff @zhadyrassyn on getting your first PR merged! Documentation is important for projects and it's a great way to ease into a project.

If you're interested, here's a fun site to see what a person's 1st PR was. I remember trying to make a perfect first PR... it wasn't ;)

If you haven't read it yet, @jess has a great post for people new to open source.

Keep the momentum going! There are so many things people can do to contribute to open source projects beyond coding that are equally important!
