Hacktoberfest - Getting the first 100 github stars — brought to you by SuperTokens and DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel.
Building an open source project can be hard, but getting to the first 100 Github repository stars can be even harder.
In this talk we take you through the process of how SuperTokens got its first 100 Github stars and how you can do the same.
