Hacktoberfest is a month long global hackathon for Open Source software. Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host, or company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skills levels are encouraged to complete the challenge.
Participants that end the month with at least 4 pull requests, whether they have been accepted yet or not qualify to receive a limited edition Hacktoberfest t-shirt free of charge from DigitalOcean. The goal for the night is to help those wanting to participate get their first pull request submitted.
