Event is hosted online

Event Description

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.

You can make any bug fixes or improvements to the project if and only if, that project's read.me file mentions it. If you have made any change in any repository which the owner does not approve, it might be counted as an invalid pull-request.
