Text chat pro-tip: Overuse emoji. It may feel a little juvenile to you at times. Fight that feeling and do it anyway. Since you lose out on body language, and it can be difficult to convey tone, you need to double down on other signaling methods.

Also, please feel free to DM me if you have questions or just want to talk about open source in general. :D

Overall, I'd say that there IS a learning curve if you are starting out the first time in open source but you don't have to be scared of it! People are always eager to help, so helping them help you by communicating problems clearly can make the curve smoother. :)

The feature was also the first time I was participating in a code review! It took lots of reviews to get it in -- so don't feel dejected if it takes some time to get your patch in. That's a part of the process and it will help you in writing better code in the future. πŸ’―

This also helps in developing a rapport with your mentor -- which is essential for having a fun experience (for both of you!) through out the internship. :)

...and had to really struggle with it. I think one thing that helped me the most was trying to solve the problems first by myself and _then_ reach out to the mentor with *exact questions and details* about the problem I was facing.
