My first pull request has been merged! It’s an article on mailto links that I wrote for Free Code Camp’s guide.
It was the first time I contributed to an open-source project and I realized it was real work. It’s often taken for granted, when we consult wikipedia or use anything open source, but it’s real, important work.
Giving back to Free Code Camp that way was important to me. And beyond that, I’d be so glad if I could help other codenewbies to become more confident in what they do. Contributing ranks high in my list of priorities.
As a consequence, I was very happy when I read the merging notification! 🙂
