Hacktoberfest 2020 X Gitcoin

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Thursday October 1, 2020
12:00am to Oct 31, 11:59pm EDT
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.

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.

At dawn on October 1st, the schedule is this: begin hacking away at Hacktoberfest. If you've got a project you want to contribute to, do so! If you're a maintainer, maintain! Newcomers, make sure you go to to projects that have signed up for Hacktoberfest. Maintainers, make sure that you've added your project as a Hacktoberfest participant.
