Hacktoberfest 2021 is Here 🎃

Heads up: @nickytonline and I are kicking off Hacktoberfest with a celebration on the DEV Community Twitch stream TODAY! Join us at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET/ 4 PM UTC here


The worldwide celebration of open source projects and contributions is back – and for the eighth year in a row, it’s hosted by our friends over at @DigitalOcean.

We’re excited to follow your journey from Friday, October 1 through Sunday, October 31, 2021 right here on DEV. But before we share exactly how you can participate in the DEV Hacktoberfest celebration in 2021, please let us know if you plan to participate by leaving a comment in this thread. If you’re an open source project maintainer seeking contributions for Hacktoberfest this year, the community would love to hear all about your project here.

Let's talk about how you can participate in Hacktoberfest 2021…

1. Review Open Source Etiquette Guidelines

To ensure you’re making valuable contributions to open source projects this month, we encourage you to check out this open source etiquette guide from last year that will help inform you before making your pull requests. It always helps to review this information – even if you’ve contributed to open source projects before 😊

2. Sign Up

  • Sign up for Hacktoberfest 2021 to participate

3. Make 4 Hacktoberfest Pull Requests

  • Make at least four pull requests (PRs) by October 31 in any participating GitHub-hosted repository/project
  • Your PRs will count toward your participation if they are in a repo with the hacktoberfest topic and once they have been merged, approved by a maintainer, or labeled as hacktoberfest-accepted.
  • Maintainers can opt-in to participate by classifying their projects with the hacktoberfest topic (find a list of opted-in projects here )
  • Any PR with the hacktoberfest-accepted label, submitted to any public GitHub repository, with or without the hacktoberfest topic, will be considered valid.

3. Earn Cool Prizes, Plant Trees

By participating in Hacktoberfest 2021, you'll gain more open source experience and get the chance to earn some Hacktoberfest prizes. For the second year in a row, DigitalOcean is offering an alternative to their traditional Hacktoberfest t-shirt prize: a plant-a-tree alternative! While those Hacktoberfest t-shirts are coveted and amazing, it always feels good to help the planet and reduce waste 🌲

4. Share your Hacktoberfest 2021 Story on DEV

We encourage all participants of Hacktoberfest to share their journeys with us on DEV by using the #hacktoberfest tag. Why? The community always benefits from reading stories about other open source contributions so they can improve their own participation in the ecosystem. Oh, and we’ll also be offering anyone who shares a #hacktoberfest post on DEV (who is also a registered Hacktoberfest participant) a limited edition Hacktoberfest 2021 profile badge. To receive your badge at the end of the month, just keep your eyes out for a post by @thepracticaldev where you'll submit your email and a bit of information about your participation. Don’t miss these badges – once Hacktoberfest 2021 is over, we’ll never be awarding them again. If you'd like a badge on your CodeNewbie Community profile, too, just cross-post your DEV article there this month.

Be sure to follow the tag, as the DEV/Forem team will be publishing our own helpful Hacktoberfest content all month long!

Not sure about what kind of Hacktoberfest post you should share with us? Click here for a Hacktoberfest post template where you can choose between a few ideas — or write your own Hacktoberfest post from scratch.

We can't wait to read your Hacktoberfest story ❤️

5. Join DEV/Forem on Twitch

Throughout the month, @nickytonline and I will be livestreaming about Hacktoberfest! Follow us on Twitch at twitch.tv/thepracticaldev to be notified when a stream begins. 👾

Join us for the first Hacktoberfest stream today at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET/ 4 PM UTC on Twitch

DEV Hacktoberfest Kick-off Twitch Stream

Join Nick Taylor and Christina Gorton on Friday Oct, 1st at 12pm ET/ 4pm UTC on thePracticalDev Twitch. We will be chatting about open issues for Hacktoberfest in the Forem repo, how to get started contributing, and using Gitpod.

6. Share your Hacktoberfest progress, discuss, and get help

  • Ask a question about Hacktoberfest by using the tags #hacktoberfest and #help (– hint: use this template if you’ve never published a help thread on DEV. Don’t forget to include the #hacktoberfest tag, too!)
  • Discuss your Hacktoberfest journey in this thread
  • Tell us when you've completed all PRs in this thread

7. Contribute to Forem!

For the second year in a row, Forem (the open source software that powers DEV) is actively seeking Hacktoberfest contributions! We would be honored to be amongst your four PRs this month.

>> Check out all the Hacktoberfest-eligible bugs in the Forem codebase

We hope you have a blast contributing to/celebrating open source this month. Tell us all about it here on DEV when you get the chance!

Happy Hacktoberfest 2021 🎃

You're invited to work on a database system, tailored to store and query the full history of your data. The system stores a huge persistent tree of index trees in a log-file, but we also plan to store databases in a distributed log as for instance Apache Kafka or Apache Bookkeeper.

Any help is greatly appreciated. You don't have to be a database expert. You can also work on several smaller issues as well as on custom made SieixDB HTTP clients for different languages.

GitHub logo sirixdb / sirix

SirixDB is a temporal, evolutionary database system, which uses an accumulate only approach. It keeps the full history of each resource. Every commit stores a space-efficient snapshot through structural sharing. It is log-structured and never overwrites data. SirixDB uses a novel page-level versioning approach called sliding snapshot.

Stores small-sized, immutable snapshots of your data and facilitates querying the full history

Working on your first Pull Request? You can learn how from this free series How to Contribute to an Open Source Project on GitHub and another tutorial: How YOU can contribute to OSS, a beginners guide

"Remember that you're lucky, even if you don't think you are, because there's always something that you can be thankful for." - Esther Grace Earl (tswgo.org)

SirixDB uses a huge persistent (in the functional sense) tree of tries, wherein the committed snapshots share unchanged pages and even common records in changed pages. The system only stores page-fragments instead of full pages during a commit to reduce write-amplification. During read operations, the system reads the page-fragments in parallel to reconstruct an in-memory page.

Hello hackers and happy Hacktoberfest! We welcome and invite you to contribute Budibase.

Budibase is an open-source low code platform for building internal tools, and a modern alternative to Retool, Outsystems, and Mendix.

From start to finish, it's possible to build an internal tool in just a few minutes.

Budibase is different from other platforms, you can choose to build internal tools using Budibase's own database, or load data from MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL, MongoDB, and more. When it comes to building your interface, you can select from a catalog of accessible components. Budibase internal tools work on mobile, tablet, and desktop.

And what's truly special, is Budibase has its own automation interface for automating the manual processes within workplaces - it also integrates with Zapier, Integromat, Slack, and more.

It's possible to deploy Budibase using Docker, K8s, Digital Ocean. We launch our new Cloud platform in a couple of days 🚀

We appreciate all contributions and thank-you!

Open-source Audio Datasets

audio-catalog

Hacktoberfest is a month-long virtual festival of open source! Participants are giving back to the community by completing pull requests, participating in events, and donating to open-source projects. This project is part of Hacktoberfest 2021, where participants enrich the open-source audio datasets hosted on DagsHub.

Quick Start to Contribution

What does the DagsHub community contribute?

This year we'd like to focus our contribution on the audio domain. For that, we added audio data catalog capabilities to DagsHub! You can now upload audio files to DagsHub and see its spectrogram, wave, and even listen to it! You can see a vivid example of this (extremely cool) feature in our Librispeech-ASR-corpus project.
