I just got a pull request accepted in a public open source project for the first time.

@hauntedlatte You speak truth! I have made an entire career and a whole lot of great working relationships based on:
"Hmmm, I don't know. Let's go figure it out together. Where do you think we should start?"
Asking that last question is the key. Even if you think you might know the answer, ask it, and then let the magic happen! You'll be surprised at how often the best answer was completely different than your initial assumptions!

I'm Göran, an average straight white middle-aged man from Sweden, father of two teenagers.
I love to build stuff, be it a raspberry pi- based wall clock with go-to-school indicator, a LoRa water temp sensor for my favourite spot in the archipelago, or an IKEA kitchen.
I think a lot about what I can do to make the world a better place, and try to see it from other people's perspective. I think being called SJW must be a awesome compliment.
Don't mind being told that I'm wrong.
