First Open Source Contribution Doesn't Have To Be Hard.

It's October and we all know what it's all about - Hacktoberfest. People are busy celebrating open-source and making contributions.

Contributions? 🤔 Wondering how to get started with your first open-source contribution? You're in the right place! Keep scrolling...
Let's get to it step by step ✨

So what exactly is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio. It encourages participation in the open source community, which grows bigger every year.

Complete the challenge by contributing and getting 4 pull requests merged and earn a limited edition T-shirt. It is open to everyone in our global community! Four quality pull requests must be submitted to public GitHub repositories.
