Hacktoberfest is a month-long virtual festival event to celebrate open source contributions presented by Digital Ocean and DEV. It is the easiest way to get into open source!
The Hacktoberfest’s simple plain objective is:
Support open source and earn a limited-edition T-shirt!
But, it’s not just about t-shirts or stickers. It's about supporting open source. It's about celebrating open source, and giving it back.
Hacktoberfest® is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code.
You can contribute to any open source project hosted on Github.com and contribute anything between October 1 to October 31 midnight in 2020. You will find plenty of issues labelled with hacktoberfest or good-first-issue etc on Github. These will be the simple ones most probably and easy to fix.
