What are you going to be working on? Saw you were getting into JAMstack and I’ve had a lot of fun with projects in that space.

j3ffjessie profile image

Honestly no clue, have a lot to learn. Working through VetsWhoCode cohort right now and learning. Have my own project I could work on but probably just get comfortable contributing to other projects where I can for the month. Haven’t put much thought into it really. Been way to busy with work.

Word. Be sure to keep us updated. My dad’s a vet and getting started on a Squarespace site so I’m excited to see what you get up to.

Definitely. Working with APIs and Node right now so trying to come up with something cool in that aspect for right now. Who knows what will come of it.

Hi everyone! This is my first Hacktoberfest.

Testing is pretty intimidating to people, even developers with years of experience, so I want to make a testing-for-beginners tool. I want to create a plug and play command line tool that anyone can put in the test command for npm if they have nothing there.

I don't have a repo, just an idea :-)

I'd love for that to exist. Testing is one of the things I haven't done and really want to

First time contributing to Hacktoberfest 🙋‍♀️

I will ✋ This will be my 2nd Hacktoberfest. In the 1st one I was introduced to the world of open source. This time I wish to work on some C++ repos(which are very very hard to find) and I have started learning JavaScript so I wish I could find something that's beginner friendly and doable.

Hello everybody,

I am looking forward to contributing to Hacktoberfest first time ever :)
I learn some basics of Android Development in my free time and I hope I can add some value to one or more open-source projects.
The main reason to do it:

  • I don't want to regret years later why I didn't try it out. Or regret why I didn't participate earlier :)
  • I believe, teamwork is more successful than individual performance. Hopefully, both of us will learn something new.

Good luck everyone

My first time! Forcing myself to do this because I am a new dev who is learning and hope this gives me more confidence about working with others and collaborating on awesome things!

This will be my third Hacktoberfest. In fact, I actually found out about DEV community from previous Hacktoberfest events!

It has been real fun dedicating previous Octobers' to contribute to the tools that I rely on the most and I'm looking forwards the upcoming Hacktoberfest!

Oh and by the way, really love the previous year t-shirts, I make sure to sport them regularly!

Hello everyone!
This is my first Hacktoberfest and out of sheer excitement, I've already raised 4 pull requests out of which 2 got merged already.

I am Tahanima, currently working as a QA Engineer @ Therap (BD) Ltd. I have started my Open Source contribution journey from this year through GirlScript Summer of Code. And I find it very satisfying and enjoyable to contribute to Open Source.

Good wishes to everyone!
