Today, I want to share my wonderful experience with you all.
Starting from the starting, from two weeks, I was trying to work on something in open source, to learn something new, I tried to work on some well known projects: VS Code and Git hub desktop but unfortunately both were assigned to somebody else.
I was feeling a bit low but then I decided to work on not well know projects but on the one which will be a challenge to me and after some search I found one which I really wanted to do, I had to create a suggestions list on user’s input. More like when you search on google you are given suggestions, exactly like that.
I accepted the challenge and started working on it. It took me some time to understand the working of the project but when I understood the working, I knew the steps to be taken to complete it.
Generic steps will be:
- Accessing the right Database.
- After accessing, taking the data to the right place in the code.
- Showing the data in a user friendly way.
I followed on the steps and ended up creating this:
It was not an easy journey, I had to write almost 70–80 lines of code without touching the owners code and beside that I had to get that working passing through all the errors, which could come in my way and there were a lot but that’s what is called learning. I learned, now its your time to be open and learn.
