October ended with the Hacktoberfest and it was great opportunity to be a part of it. The Hacktoberfest was just the stepping stones into this big world called the open source community. It was amazing to see people from all over the world contribute their knowledge on this platform. No matter who the person is, your code however small is appreciated.
So for Release 0.3, my Prof asked us to go bigger and better. For the Hacktoberfest, I did small bugs but for this I need to go bigger. The requirements for this project is 2 internal pull requests and 1 external pull request. Internal projects are the ones done by Seneca Students. Eleven open source projects were brought up in class by my classmates. You can get to know all here
The two internal projects that I would like to work on are:
Unity Side Scrolling game in C# (Solitary)
This game is written in C#, a language that I have never learnt before. This is a good opportunity to learn something new and put myself out there. The game is all about puzzles like Tangrams, Anagrams, Word passcode. It consists of five levels and a main hub. I know the owner of this project who is in the same class as me. Hence, it was easy to communicate with him regarding the project. I have already contributed to this project by creating a discord channel for people who wish to be a part of this project.
Online games never really fascinate me but this caught my attention as it has nothing to do with guns and shooting and killing. It is about puzzles which helps a person develop their brain. I am really looking forward to working on a new language and contributing to this this project.

2. Speech-To-Text for HTML Coding in VSCode
This project caught my attention because I was planning to work on VScode for a long time and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to do so. This project is about building a visual studio code extension that allows voice commands to create HTML documents. Seems hard? Yes it does. But you won’t know anything about it unless you try it out. I always like to be on the safe side of things but this course is helping me take risks for the better. I haven’t contributed to it yet but I would love to be a part of it.

For my third pull request, I need to work on an external project. I haven’t decided yet as there are so many things I want to learn and try out. But I also need to be careful of not getting caught up in all of this. I would really love to work on projects related to Redis , Visual Studio Code, and many more.
That’s all for today, until next time.
