Message to other contributors📖

I remeber myself when I joined the community that I was not aware of many things going in the community but I didn't got off from track, I did take 2 weeks to solve a graphql issue but I completed it. Many things are there that you may not know during joining the community but you learn along the journey and there is no fear in that. The thing is you can't set back and leave if you are unable to crack something. Learn and come back strong. This is community , this is Layer5.
