Countdown to Hacktoberfest 2020 has started!

With more than a month to go, the countdown to Hacktoberfest 2020 has just started: Subscribe to Hacktoberfest 2020 updates.

This year they offer an environmentally friendly choice: Participants can choose the β€˜pick trees, not tees’ option to replace a Hacktoberfest T-shirt with a planted tree in celebration of your accomplishments.

Last year more than 60k devs completed the challenge.
Will you participate this year?

Yes, I will, again participate.
Really like the Hacktoberfest I used the occasion, in the past to spread excitement for Open source, I mean you get a cool free! shirt and a bunch of stickers out of it.

This year you can also choose to get a Tree instead!? A though choice!

I might have to pick the shirt anyway, as I already donated to Multiple orgs that promised to plant trees with the Money.
Also I am currently growing my own tree. Granted, it is only 20cm in hight yet... But... Damnit how can I justify to myself that it's okay to try and get the Shirt XD?

Never participated before might consider it if I am not too busy learning Python and Go.
