My Experience at LGM-SOC’21 (Let’s Grow More Summer Of Code)

What is LGM-SOC?

LGM-SOC is an online program designed to encourage open-source software development participation under the guidance of mentors from the open-source community. As it’s the present demand and students’ need, so let's Grow More come up with LGM-SOC:


  • All you need to be is a student ready to grab a learning opportunity
  • Accepted into or enrolled in a graduate program by the students' acceptance date.
  • Eligible to work in the country you reside in.

How I came to know about LGM-SOC?

One of my connections on LinkedIn posted that he was selected for LGM-SOC as a participant. I was interested in it so I applied for the participant role and got a confirmation mail within a week that I have been selected.

Program Begins

At the beginning of this program, I was a beginner in Git and GitHub. As this program was beginner-friendly, they conducted many sessions on Git and GitHub, Contributing to Open-Source, and much more. Those sessions helped me to clear my basics in those topics.
