My First Open Source Interaction

My First Open Source Interaction

Background

As part of my Open Source course at Seneca College me and my colleagues collaborated with our small note taking projects so we could experience how the open source community works before delving into major projects.

For this course this project is called Release 0.1, which involved collaboration with 2 different projects fixes as follow.


Fix 1 - https://github.com/robertbegna/my-note

This web note taking app was already fully functional but its editable text area lacked a clear outline indicating where the users should type their notes. My fixes were added with a CSS file addition. The text area had an id so it made my changes easy to apply.

Fix 2 - https://github.com/a8a9a16/whiteboard

This web note taking app was already fully functional but I liked the idea to have a few buttons so users could save whenever they wanted or clear the contents of the notepad. For this feature I added Bootstrap to the project to work well with the layout and used the already nice looking Paper CSS from the existing app for the buttons.

I really enjoyed this Open Source experience with GitHub, it taught me a lot on how to work with GitHub while collaborating with other user's projects.
