Welcome to Hacktoberfest 2022! Here's some stuff that's changed since last year and new information:
This year, if you make two or more pull requests that get marked as spam/invalid will be permanently disqualified (you will never be able to participate in Hacktoberfest ever again)
It's a bit hard to get started so here's some nice resources to look at:
https://hacktoberfest-swag.com/ and https://hacktoberfestswaglist.com/ are good resources when it comes to finding some companies that provide swag. These are also hacktoberfest accepted repositories that you can contribute to on Github.
This is where I put in a self insert of a list of valid repositories to contribute to
Comment below if you know any other neat resources!
