Hacktoberfest: No shame in low-code (or no-code)!


Hello there my internet friends! Long time no see, I guess. As the post tone suggests, I haven't been actively writing blog posts for some long time. I hope you are all doing great and smashing them cherry keys! But anyway. What is this post about? It is about writing, nocode/lowcode, Hacktoberfest, and a little treat for y'all.

Hacktoberfest: Lowcode & Nocode

Hacktoberfest. Hacktoberfest is an event I genuinely love and consider one of the most important for the folks in tech that actually do it as a hobby. I'm not going to go over what Hacktoberfest is because I know you all know the drill - 4 PRs/MRs results in a swag pack. What I want to talk about, though, is the benefits of lowcode/nocode contributions.

Well, lowcode and nocode contributions sounds a bit... well, a bit unprofessional, right? Nope. There is nothing unprofessional in these contributions. That is because, if done right, nocode and lowcode contributions can actually boost a project enormously. Just to name a few benefits:

  • Documentation
  • Code Readability
  • Legal
  • more

You get the idea. If you take a look at a repo that does not have a README, it is quite hard to understand what to do, right?

Get the "unprofessional" stigma out of your head and go do some great lowcode/nocode contributions!

Oh, you don't know where to start? Worry not for I have you covered in the next section!

Repo: DevOps Handbook

Repo link: here

DevOps Handbook is a repository that is an open-source e-book. A book written by many authors. A book that contains the works of wonderful contributors around the world and specifically crafted to be finished during Hacktoberfest.

The book is constructed of two part:

  • I: DevOps Theory
  • II: DevOps Practice

DevOps Theory

In this section, the reader gets to know everything there is to know about DevOps - what it is, what technologies fall into the domain, how to become one, etc.

DevOps Practice

With the reader already having a good fundament on what they need to know before advancing as a DevOps engineer, here follows the practical section. Each chapter of this section is a technical blog post on how to do certain DevOps tasks.

And with this being said, you have all the info you need to go and start writing chapters yourself!


Thanks for reading this and I hope to have motivated you just enough so that you embrace the spirit of Hacktoberfest in your soul!

If you want to contact me or simply have a friend who shares his thoughts online from time to time, make sure to follow me on twitter.

Happy Hacking!
