Hacktoberfest 2020 is my first one. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


I AM!! my first one!


Heck yeah I am. Ready and waiting. Canโ€™t wait to participate in my first Hacktoberfest.


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


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. Havenโ€™t put much thought into it really. Been way to busy with work.

Word. Be sure to keep us updated. My dadโ€™s a vet and getting started on a Squarespace site so Iโ€™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 ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ


I will โœ‹ 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.



This will be my third year. It is always fun to participate and collaborate with other developers.


Second year! I'm super excited!


First time for me ๐Ÿคž



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 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!


I am!
I hope also my repos get some PR (I still have to update the issues though).
You can find them here.


My third fest this time. Excited.


It will be fun to and besides, why wouldn't you want to participate.


Just signed up! This year's design is awesome, can't wait to see it on a t-shirt!

also stickerss


I am too. This is going to be my first time contribution to Open Source. Excited!!!


I'm interested in participating, though I'm unsure how it works. Could someone explain to me how I participate in Hacktoberfest?


I am, second year for me. Primarily looking for C or maybe Java projects to contribute to.


Me! Second one this time!


Its my first one. Super excited!!


๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ hopefully for the first time

Third year doing it here!


I am. Third year straight, gonna try and combine it with some college projects.


This is my first Hacktoberfest! I hope to use my skills to make a positive impact in the Open Source Community, particularly in projects I'm passionate about. Hoping to learn and grow along this journey!


Me me me! So excited! My first hackathon!!


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!


I am!! I'm excited to be contributing and maintaining this year. I made the repos below because I felt it was hard to find repos that had simple issues to work as a code newbie.

Queer of the Day Bot - open source Twitter bot tweeting fun goofy LGBTQ things & queer history of the day

Code Questions Bot - open source Twitter bot who tweets code questions and trivia


I'm in - my first Hacktoberfest! I'll maintain as well as contribute to some Vue.js projects ๐Ÿ˜Ž


This will be my 4th Hacktoberfest ! I hope to be able to contribute to Mattermost, to some Rust projects to level up in this language and I'll try to find some frontend and some continuous integration pipelines !

If you see have some "good first issues", don't hesitate to reference it under my comment ! I will be very happy to try to fix them ๐Ÿ˜Š


I am participating in hacktoberfest second time. Looking forward to make the best contribution ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ˜Ž


Hacktoberfest 2020 will be my first Hacktoberfest (and most definitely not the last)!


Already nailed the 2018 and 2019, now i'm more hyped than ever wanting to dedicate this month to open source projects and hold a bit my own projects as a vacation haha


Third one! Never got the t-shirt (seems like Argentina won't let me receive it), so I'll go with the tree this time. Did you know that the clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world? Right after big oil.


Me. It's going to be my first one, excited!


First time as a contributor๐Ÿ˜„


I will and its my third time.
