My First Pull

This post was originally published on this site

I was intially going to add in the contents of this post to one that I have been writing about my exploits with Hashicorp Packer but I decided it probably warrented being seperated out. While working with the following awesome project I noticed a couple of minor errors and Improvments that I wanted to suggest. I have worked in IT for over 10 years now but the opportunity to make suggestions to someone elses codebase hadn’t popped up so I was keen to rectify that. Although I had used Git/Github before it was typically for my own uses as a code storage location. I therefore needed to sanity check the process of a “pull request” so off to Youtube I went.

The above video seemed to clarify the process the best and with that knowledge the request was submited to the owners and luckily it was accepted.

You can see that I am now listed as a contributor here. Although my contributuion was tiny, now that I understand the process much better I am planning to contribute some more to what is a fantastic little project.
