Join me for Hacktoberfest
Every October, DigitalOcean celebrates the open source community by running Hacktoberfest. They encourage everybody to contribute to projects, for which you can earn swag or plant a tree. The type and size of your contributions doesn’t matter. Whether you are a programmer, designer, or expert typo-finder: all contributions are welcome.
This year’s Hacktoberfest starts tomorrow and ends on October 31st. To take part, you must first register on their site:
You become eligible to win by opening four pull requests on any public project hosted on GitHub. What project you contribute to does not matter. Some projects add a Hacktoberfest-label to their issues, but you are not limited to those. If you think you can help with something, do it and earn a reward.
Pull requests on your own projects count, but it’s more fun to work on something with others. If you have a project you’d like me to check out, or are looking for a project to contribute to, hit me up! Let’s do this one together.
PS: I have a Twitch-account now! While I have not used it yet, I’ll stream some of my Hacktoberfest-shenanigans next month. Follow me there to be notified when I go live. See you then!
I have not done any marketing for this newsletter at all, and it shows. It’s about time I change something about that.Read full article
Building for everybody is as bad as building for nobody. By defining an audience, we can focus on activities that support those we want to help.
