I made my first Open Source Contribution in 2018. The contribution was made to the Collect mobile application by Open Data Kit.
At the time, ODK's Collect app did not support escaping markdown characters using a backslash so I used regular expressions (Regex) to fix the issue. I can still remember when the pull request was merged, I was so excited. The link to the commit can be found here
My first contribution to open-source project was to my own repository back in 2014 when I was actively blogging for Sitepoint. It was a demo repository teaching how to use Ratchet Framework (it was very popular back then).
