This year Jenkins project participates in Hacktoberfest: https://jenkins.io/events/hacktoberfest . This is a global 1-month event promoting open-source. We invite everybody interested in Jenkins and other open-source projects to attend the event, contribute something, and get some Hacktoberfest swag.
