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.
Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe, so MSTC is bringing it to LPU so that all participants can sit under one roof and learn and have fun at the same time.
And there's so much to win, like First Pull Request Prize, Most Number of Pull Requests, and some giveaways. Also, Hacktoberfest also sends swags and T-shirts to a lot of participants upon completing simple tasks.
