This month, we return DigitalOcean as a Gold sponsor. It is wonderful timing, as our two companies are partnering together this month on Hacktoberfest. Be sure to keep up with all of the action:


This tag is for content related to Hacktoberfest 2020. Open source maintainers can use this tag on posts about their project seeking contributions (we recommend adding #contributorswanted also). Contributors can tag posts documenting their Hacktoberfest journey and progress. **NOTE** please read the rules section for necessary details and updates on participating this year.

We also welcome in two amazing new companies in Educative and CloudBees. Thank you to each of these companies for being a valuable DEV Community partner and supporter.

Please take a few minutes to explore their offerings and consider them for your company or next project.


DigitalOcean is a much-loved cloud computing platform. I'm always impressed by how well-built and well-documented the DigitalOcean core products are. It's easier said than done, and they've been able to stay ahead of the curve.

DigitalOcean has been our longest-running supporter to date, and we're extremely thankful for their consistent support. Their commitment to the developer ecosystem is crystal clear.

As an organization, it's awesome to see the evolution of their service and their remarkable ability to stay top of the game for years now.

Educative is a platform for interactive software development courses. They have an embedded coding environment which makes it easy to stay in context as you learn, but it is so much more than just the coding environment. By giving course creators the freedom to use quizzes, illustrations, code playgrounds, etc. it’s really one of the more innovative learning environments for software.

CloudBees Rollout

CloudBees Rollout is a powerful code release toolset that brings feature flags, analytics, and testing to the process. Reduce risk by decoupling feature deployment from code releases. CloudBees as a whole provides solutions for CI, CD, and application release orchestration (ARO). They are the largest contributor to Jenkins, the very popular open-source automation server. Cloudbees is truly a company that lives devOps and CI/CD to its core with its entire offering.

Thanks to each of these sponsors. We are so thankful to have extended and expanded our partnership with DigitalOcean, including on this year's Hacktoberfest.

It's wonderful to welcome both Educative and CloudBees. Both are great companies, so I do really encourage you to check both of them out.

Cannot copy link through android application for sponsorship. Just to inform you it would be a nice feature to long press link and get popup with copy link option.

Also on Android the top-right profile button often doesn't work in the app and PWA.
