Another year of contributing to Hacktoberfest !

This is cross-posted from DEV.

πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Hello world friend !

My name is Thomas, I'm 22 years old at the moment, I like to participate to Open Source projects and help people with my web dev skills.

πŸ‘€ Background

In 2015, I signed up on GitHub and I really didn't think that I would contribute one day. I was using the platform as a cloud for my private projects. Now I use it for a lot more things, like obviously versioning but also to keep everything in order, and then there are GitHub Actions that can be useful, so it's always cool to have that ! πŸ˜„πŸ’š

My GitHub inscription

Now I'm participating in some projects when I can. I'm always willing to help out, even if it's a small thing, it makes me happy πŸŽ‰

I can help on different aspects of a project, front-end, French translation or accessibility (I have to improve in it).

At the moment, I'm working on VueJS and NuxtJs. I also released my website a few months ago. β˜•πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

πŸ”­ Progress

Where am I now? I've already surpassed the 4 Pull Request (PR) goal, but my goal is to do more and continue in the following weeks. πŸ˜„πŸ’ͺ🏼

πŸ”§ Contributions

These are the contributions made at the moment, but this is probably not the final list.

I also have a PR on that adds a French documentation, but it doesn't count for the Hacktoberfest if it can interest people

πŸ”₯ Reflections

This is not the first time I have participated in this event. It's already the fourth year, and I'm always happy to have helped some repositories. I will participate again next year

The fact that you can also help with the French translation is definitely a big plus. Recently, I realized how important knowledge of languages ​​is. I needed to prepare a translation from Portuguese and it turned out to be quite difficult. Portuguese Language Translation helped me to cope with this and I received a high-quality and accurate translation.
