Hacktoberfest 2019 is here, so let's get together and contribute to the open source community! Bring your laptop and get ready to write some code!
DigitalOcean and Dev.to sponsor Hacktoberfest every October to promote meaningful contributions to the open source ecosystem — for beginners and veterans alike. There are so many open source projects that we depend on every day that have issues that need to be resolved.
We'll do a quick overview of open source and how it works, and we'll help anyone get started if they've never contributed to a project before. We encourage everyone to come regardless of skill level!
If you can't think of a project you want to contribute to right now, that's okay. We'll show you how to easily find issues on GitHub marked as "need help", or "hacktoberfest", or "good first issue".
Hacktoberfest is giving away t-shirts to the first 50,000 contributors who have four pull requests merged into a public repository!
At the end of the day, we'll spend some time showing the group what we've worked on.
We hope to see you there!
