About Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in the global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host, or a company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge.


Pull requests can be made in any GitHub-hosted repositories/projects.

You can sign up here anytime between October 1 and October 31.

About Pull Requests and Prizes

To earn your Hacktoberfest tee or tree reward, you must register and make four valid pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone).

We are an open community of geeks who help each other learn new technologies, in a peer-to-peer learning environment. We believe that every student can become a developer and use their newfound knowledge to make an impact on their society. To help students bridge the gap between theory and practice, we host workshops, meetups, and informative sessions every now and then.
