Hacktoberfest is a great incentive for people to start contributing back to the OSS community and you can get yourself some free swag 👕. With the clock ticking down on Hacktoberfest — I’ve got a new open source project that you’re more than to contribute to! jest-extended 🎉
Do you use Facebook’s amazing testing library Jest? If you haven’t then I definitely recommend you give it a try — amongst other things the developer experience of using it is second to none.
Here it is, my obligatory first blog post 🎉. Hey! I’m Matt Phillips an Open Source Software Engineer from London 🏙
I started out coding as a teenager making classics like pong 🏓 and then moved onto study 📖 Computer Science 🔬 at the University of Nottingham. I’ve experienced working at big corps like BT and HSBC and smaller companies with <20 developers. I recently moved into contracting and love the variety of new roles and freedom to spend time working on OSS.
