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.
