My first contribution to open source technology was for FilerJS in which i had to modify filerjs/filer/tests/spec/fs.exists.spec.js. I first began by forking the project into my github account and created an issue stating that i need to modify fs.exists.spec.js , replacing var with either const or let. Moments later i was assigned to #issue-710 which I then cloned to my local work area. I modified the file and pushed it up to a branch issue-710. After that i created pull request to merge my change to FilerJS. It ran a test on my changes and was overall successful. It was an awesome experience.
