Each project will have issues open in it of varying difficulty and each issue will have points associated with it as below:
“In one month I got to know many things related to development,most of which was in web development.I got to know about the github and git and most importantly the linux command line. Contributing to projects gave me internal happiness as my work was used in the main project and available publicly.It was an experience to remember and I can’t forget it as it gave me a head start into the world of Open-Source contributing.”
“The event is great for beginners and experienced students who want to get started with open source development or looking for a challenging contest in the same field. The best part about this event is the timing. It is placed just a month before GSoC starts. It is a one month long event. It also teaches you to stay active through out the period. I was leading when the event started, but I soon fell back a little 😝.”
“I’ve learned a lot after joining opencode.There are lot of projects in opencode which helps you apply your skills in web development. Before joining the opencode competition I didn’t even know what GitHub was and how useful it is. In fact I didn’t even have a GitHub account!. Opencode was the reason that i joined GitHub. Opencode is my first step towards opensource development and I’m glad that I’m a part of it.”
