🐳 Docker x Hacktoberfest 2022 - Contribute and Win Swags

Community is at the heart of what Docker does. From our Docker Captains sharing their insight and expertise to hundreds of Meetup events around the world, to our Slack and community forums for peer-to-peer support, there’s someone else out there who has been there, done that and is eager to help.

Developing apps today is not just limited to writing code. Multiple languages, frameworks, architectures, and discontinuous interfaces between tools for each lifecycle stage create enormous complexity. Docker simplifies and accelerates your workflow while giving developers the freedom to innovate with their choice of tools, application stacks, and deployment environments for each project.

We at Docker are thrilled to share that we’ll be joining in for Hacktoberfest 2022 and supporting open-source developers.

What is Hacktoberfest all about?

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open-source projects, their maintainers, and the entire community of contributors. This event is all about giving back to the community and celebrating all things open source. We’d like to invite you to celebrate Hacktoberfest with us and contribute to the Docker Community Extensions.

What's so cool about Docker Extensions?

extensions1

Docker Extensions lets you connect your favorite development tools to your application development and deployment workflows. It lets you use third-party tools within Docker Desktop to extend its functionality. Said that, you can seamlessly connect your favorite development tools to your application development and deployment workflows. It allows you to augment Docker Desktop with debugging, testing, security, and networking functionalities, and build custom add-ons using the Extensions SDK.

❓How shall I participate and contribute?

To participate, there are two main ways you can contribute:

  1. Create a new own open-source extension and add it to the list.
  2. Contribute to any of the existing open source extensions listed that are allowing PRs for Hacktoberfest.

In order to take part in Hacktoberfest, all you need to do is open Pull Requests on this repo or any of the repos listed below joining Hacktoberfest, and get your PR merged or approved.

We know that creating your own extension can feel like a big undertaking so here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:

  1. The extension should resolve a user pain point or help fill an existing user need.
  2. The extension does not need to be production ready by the end of Hacktoberfest.
  3. The extension could be an idea or proof of concept.
