My KWOC experience
KWOC was my first open-source participation and undoubtedly, it proved to be a great learning experience. Both of my mentors were extremely helpful and maintained proper communication with the participants through the IRC channels throughout the program. It also introduced me to the Git Version Control system and I got to learn a lot about how to make a pull request and raise issues. I also got this wonderful opportunity to network with so many enthusiastic people working on the same project. It also helped me to put my skills learned into practical use. I highly encourage the beginners who are starting their journey in the open-source world to participate in the Kharagpur Winter Of Code.
I want to thank KOSS, IIT KGP for conducting this program. This definitely boosted my confidence and I am looking forward to participating in more Open Source events in the future.
