Event Description

CONTRIBUTING.md

CONTRIBUTING.md is an open Hacktoberfest meetup for anyone who wants to join. You might be interested in learning more about how you can contribute, we'll have some people over from fun projects to join and you can meet the community and network. Are you curious about the projects? Check back regularly at our meetup page to see our interviews with contributors & maintainers.

Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Can't make it to this online meetup? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.

Rules and Rewards

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31. Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or spammy behavior, or not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using @DigitalOcean, @hacktoberfest, #hacktoberfest on your social media platform of choice.

Especially for this occasion we want to bring together developer communities. We all work for a major tech company, but that's just coincidental. It's how we've found each other. We've decided to bring together the communities we work for and get them enthusiastic for contributing, find a cool new project or network.
