Another fantastic Hacktoberfest is in the books! We hope everyone who participated learned something about open source, global collaboration, and themselves in the process. Scroll to the Hacktoberfest on DEV section for important info about getting your Hacktoberfest participation profile badge.
Thank you to DigitalOcean for hosting Hacktoberfest for another year in a row and making the event as inclusive as possible ❤️
The Impact of Open Source
The health of open source software is tremendously important — not only to the tech community but in the wider world as well. A well-functioning OSS ecosystem means greater neutrality, accessibility, and collaboration within the most powerful software system on earth. Sustaining this health depends on the hard work and participation of contributors and maintainers alike. Isn't it incredible that all of us can participate in this process?

Woohoo! Congrats on these lovely contributions!
Question-- since Hacktoberfest is counting maintainer actions this year, will this badge be available to those who only maintained for Hacktoberfest as well?
Hi, @cerchie ! The badge will be available to anyone who officially registered and participated — in any capacity 😊
Thank you Gracie!
