Hey, thanks for the article! I recently had a successful round of job applications and having a GitHub profile definitely helped. I actually just wrote an article on my blog on how to write a CV as a software developer and one of my tips was to use GitHub as a way to showcase your tech stack.

So far, my GitHub profile only includes my own projects. Do you have any advice on getting started with contributing to open source?
