Every year Digital Ocean puts on a hackathon in October called Hacktoberfest and this year they are partnering with DEV. As some may remember last October was the very end of my nanodegree program so I didn’t participate.
WHY I’M PARTICIPATING
I’ve been wanting to get into open source for a couple months now to be able to use the skills I’ve been learning and interact with others’ code again since I miss that and I feel as though participating in something globally, like Hacktoberfest, will help motivate me to actually start.
Since it is my first time doing open source I’m going to start off with easier issues, but would I really be me if I didn’t add on more goals for myself?
Contribute to one climate change- based project
Do one PR where I have to learn something new
One contribution using C++ (if I fail on any this will be it since it’s a super new language to me)
One contribution utilizing React or Vue frameworks
What are your October goals? Who else is participating? Have you contributed to open source before?
