I wanna give a shoutout to @pachicodes who has been a long contributor on DEV, writing under (and moderating) the tag #braziliandevs (along with @lissatransborda πŸ™Œ) amongst many other things! Just to say, Pachi and Lissa have been incredible at fostering our Brazilian community here on DEV β€” really appreciate you two for this!

Anywho, Pachi recently wrote up a helpful guide in Portuguese that explains how to prepare for Hacktoberfest. This guide is meant for both maintainers and contributors, and it's super thorough! Really appreciate ya sharing this resource, Pachi. πŸ˜€

By the way, if you don't speak Portuguese, but want to read Pachi's guide, it's likely that you can use an in-browser translation to do so. At least, that's what I did!

I added the #hacktoberfest tag to one of my repositories, in case folks would like to contribute. It’s an Awesome List, so it’s low code (mostly a markdown document to add to or improve); but it does require a level of interest in the relevant topic, and ideally some testing of any contributed linked projects to ensure that they really are β€œawesome”! My first time trying this as part of #hacktoberfest; I’ve started the month with travel, so I haven’t had a lot of time to contribute elsewhere just yet.

A curated list of awesome apps built with, or libraries and resources for using, the modern Twitter API

Awesome Modern Twitter API Awesome

v2 CC-0 license

awesome-modern-twitter-api

A curated list of awesome libraries, SDKs, software and resources for the modern (post-v1.1) Twitter API.

The Twitter API is the programming interface that enables developers like you to build apps and tools on top of the Twitter Developer Platform. Version 2 of the API represented a complete rewrite from the legacy (v1.1) platform, with new endpoints, data formats, and semantics. This list only includes content that is directly relevant to the modern API.

This list is community-contributed, and it is not owned by Twitter. The list can only be even more awesome, with your help! Feel free to contribute, or add to the discussion around items that could be included in the future. Spotted a dead link, typo, or other mistake? Please raise an issue πŸ™Œ

Hey andy! I have a couple projects but they aren't open source, would it still be worth adding to the list?

I don’t know… I think most Awesome Lists usually cover Open Source and free resources, but I’d have to look into it to be sure. The idea was definitely to highlight resources that would help folks to get started and inspired with the new API. Happy to consider it but I haven’t really decided! Wondering what others might think…?

Hacktoberfest in itself is a contribution to Open Source. πŸ’š

A few weeks ago, @nickytonline mentioned me on Twitter to help Astro translate their documentation in French. Now I enjoy taking a break from training and translating new pages. The community is friendly, and we easily discuss on their Discord. 🀩

So, for this Hacktoberfest 2022, I make a lot of contributions for the Astro doc. πŸš€πŸ€©

For Hacktoberfest, I'm going to be writing some more articles. I've written a few in the past that seem well received, such as Automatic SSL with Let's Encrypt & Nginx and Your job title is what you do, not who you are, but I'd like to try to write a little more, and what better time than during Hacktoberfest?

I've just published my top 10 tips for new coders for #hacktoberfest, with more on the way, so follow along as I try to share some of what I've learnt over two decades as a software engineer.
