My First Open Source Contribution!
This is how I feel after participation in Let’s Grow More Summer Of Code
Before the summer vacation of my college, I was thinking to utilise my summer break in a way so that I can learn some new things. I already knew some DS Algo, App Development, and other basic CS things. But yet, I didn't have any experience of working in a group or working with a group of people. Then I found out about Let’s Grow More Summer of Code.
LGM — SOC is an online program designed to encourage student participation in open source software development under the guidance of mentors from the open-source community. As it’s the present demand and students need.
I've participated in a project which contains all the Competitive programming questions and Interview questions. The main aim of the project was to help students who are preparing for the coding interview. That contains questions from popular coding platforms including Hackerank, Codechef, LeetCode, Codeforces, GeeksforGeeks, and many more.
I did add many DS questions in that project and solutions also. I solved most of the problems using the C++ language. But in some problems, I've used C and Java also. Working with a team, talking about programming problems, finding solutions, all these things helped me a lot to gain more knowledge of Data structures and algorithms. In the meantime, I researched a lot about the different algorithms and kept increasing my ratings in competitive programming platforms. So, it has become one of the best utilization of my time during the break. I'm really interested to participate in more programs organized by Let's Grow More.
