My first contribution to open source has been merged !
On a previous article, i shared the fact that i submitted my first PR on a open-source project.
And guess what ? my PR has been merged :)
What was your contribution ?
My contribution was super simple. It was on a Golang app, and the PR was about removing unused code.
Super simple :)
How did you find it ?
I used different resources to search for something i could do :
- i wanted a project in Golang
- i wanted a small repository where i could submit my PR and have reviews.
- i did not wanted a big repository.
- but the repository must be active , with active reviewers and PR merged on a regular basis
I found my issue on UpForGrabs
But you can also check these out :
And also , this super useful link from freecodecamp => it's a goldmine :)
You can do it
If i can do it, you can definitely do it :)
There are soooo many issues out there, some are super simple like the one i did. Don't think you are not good enough to start contributing.
I am now looking for my next contribution, i am gonna try something more difficult that just removing some code hahaha :)
Share in the comments your first contribution to open-source :)
