There are lots of projects who have been involved in Hacktoberfest this year. As Hacktoberfest heads into its last few days, it's time to get your final pull requests in.
If you're yet to start contributing, sign up to start hacking today. Any PRs you've made throughout the month of October will be counted, even if you signed up late! You'll need to make sure the project or projects you've contributed to have the
#hacktoberfest tag on the repo. Your PRs should then be counted. Provided your pull requested are accepted and meet the Hacktoberfest values.

While I was on my recent Hacktoberfest live stream we discovered Flyte. It's an open source project for machine learning and data processing. Flyte is a platform enabling workflows.
If you're into machine learning and data science you definitely need to check out Flyte. Let's look at little closer at the project, and how to contribute.
What is Flyte
Flyte was created by Lyft in collaboration with Spotify, Freenome, and the broader community (it is open source of course). It enables and builds workflows for machine learning and data processing.
Instead of writing *.yaml files (which are what workflow run on), you can spend your time writing code, and leave the workflows to Flyte. It's built on Kubernetes, and there's lots of SDKs so you can program exactly what you want.
Getting started with Flyte
One of the cool things about Flyte is they have a tonne of tutorials. These tutorials are here to teach you how to use Flyte and start processing data, training models, or performing batch predictions. The tutorials are affectionately named Flytesnacks. All the code for the tutorials is available on GitHub for easy access.

What is Flyte?
Flyte is a structured programming and distributed processing platform that enables highly concurrent, scalable, and maintainable workflows for
Machine Learning and
Data Processing. It is a fabric that connects disparate computation backends using a type-safe data dependency graph. It records all changes to a pipeline, making it possible to rewind time. It also stores
a history of all executions and provides an intuitive UI, CLI, and REST/gRPC API to interact with the computation.
Flyte is more than a workflow engine -- it uses
workflow as a core concept, and
task (a single unit of execution) as a top-level concept. Multiple tasks arranged in a data…
If you're coming to Flyte for the first time, there are lots of
good-first-issue you can work on. Pick something and get started. There's issues for fixing bugs, documentation writing, building lightweight features, and adding enhancements.
As always, if you're planning on contributing, or you're thinking about contributing to a project, remember to read the contribution guidelines. Flyte has a whole page on their website just for detailing community contributions. Check this out before opening your pull request.
What will you build in the final days of Hacktoberfest? Will you contribute to Flyte? Will you dive into Flyte snackables?
