As part of my goal to have monthly personal blog posts, here I am again! This semester seems to be flying by as it’s already Halloween.
Today I finished my last pull request for Hacktoberfest, and it was quite a learning experience. Even though I’ve been in an open source organization for five semesters, most RCOS projects and contributions are mainly internal. I learned a lot about getting involved in external open source projects, which is a valuable skill to have. Through the projects I’ve contributed to, I also learned about Reddit bots and contributed my own knowledge on Django and analog circuits. I would definitely recommend participating in Hacktoberfest, as there are plenty of issues open even for newcomers!
November seems like yet another busy month, but after this month, it’s definitely something I can handle.
