Me and Sugar Labs

My first contribution to Sugar Labs was working on this issue. Since then I have been contributing regularly by fixing bugs, suggesting ideas and creating and maintaining activities.

Back in December' 17, when I started to prepare for GSoC 2018, I decided to work for Sugar Labs. My motivation was its idea and the impact it had on the society
My work with Sugar Labs was my first introduction to an Open Source Organisation. I got to learn the workings of a big Open Source project, which is more than just writing code. I was constantly guided by the community, pointing where I went wrong and how to improve myself. Working for Sugar Labs has now become a part of my daily routine and I enjoy doing the same.




I would love to hear suggestions to improve myself, or discuss any ideas.
