This was the first-ever year that I participated in a Hacktoberfest, it also happened to be the first time I tried contributing to open source projects (I was just a beginner learning my way up in programming). And how did Hactoberfest help me...... In every possible way (actually!). I now have the confidence to contribute without the fear of my coding styles, structure etc., I have gotten better at my own skills by contributing and since I was a beginner, got to help with documentation where my programming knowledge wasn't enough. I feel if you need to get better in code and get familiar with the community, Hactoberfest is the best!
