Hacktoberfest 2023

Hacktoberfest 2023

A joyful and heartfelt salute to a remarkable milestone – a decade of unwavering commitment and participation in this incredible journey. It fills me with immense pride to reflect on the years gone by, where I stood shoulder to shoulder with fellow enthusiasts, conquering challenges year after year.

As I pen down these thoughts, there's a tinge of nostalgia, for it's become somewhat of a tradition to sport those coveted T-shirts proudly. Yet, I find solace in the bigger picture, where our collective efforts transcend mere attire. It's about the spirit of camaraderie and the shared purpose of making a difference in the world of technology.

This year, I decided to take a proactive approach, meticulously preparing in advance to hit the ground running when the event kicked off. The result? Lightning-fast pull requests that not only met the deadline but also left me with ample time to contribute even more throughout the month.

Here's a glimpse of the projects that received my assistance:

  1. React-Admin Extensions Language Translation: I took up the task of updating the Spanish language file for the incredible React-Admin project. It may be a small win, but every contribution counts.


  2. Tiddlywiki Language Translation: I've made a personal commitment to keep the Spanish translation of this invaluable tool up-to-date, ensuring that more people can benefit from its brilliance.


    Speaking of Tiddlywiki, I can't help but share my enthusiasm for this cognitive extension. It's true that it has a steep learning curve, much like the tools I tend to gravitate towards, but the rewards it offers are immeasurable. It's like an extension of your mind, helping you organize and access information like never before.

  3. coreBOS GenDoc Update: My home. I updated the Document Generation tool with the latest fixes and enhancements, with a special focus on supporting links within text and images, as well as support for denormalizing the Documents module.


  4. ADODB Issue Fix: While keeping an eye on the project that coreBOS relies on, I stumbled upon an issue that needed attention. Without hesitation, I jumped in to lend a helping hand, because that's what this initiative is all about – supporting each other.



Yet another year of participating in this heartwarming initiative, where the joy of giving back to the open-source community knows no bounds. Here's to ten years of growth, learning, and making a difference together. Cheers to many more years of collaboration and achievement!

Happy 10th Anniversary!!
