Code mentoring has been established to help people get started with coding, extend their coding ability, and to help others on their coding journey.

Throughout October we will be supporting Open Source Software (OSS) by encouraging everyone to join Hacktoberfest.

Bring your laptop, a coffee (or any other non-alcoholic drink), and join us to code in a relaxed and open setting with other developers. If you're new to coding we'll have mentors on hand to help guide you.

## What's Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today at

## Rules and prizes

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31. Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using #hacktoberfest on your social media platform of choice.
