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

What is Contribute?
A meetup to help you get started contributing to Open Source Projects. We loved hosting Hacktoberfest, so our engineers, inspired by an evening contributing to open source projects wanted to keep on giving back.
