About this event

Hacktoberfest is an annual worldwide event held during the month of October. It encourages open source developers to contribute to repositories through pull requests (PR).  If you’re interested in participating, you can find projects to contribute to, add the ‘hacktoberfest’ tag to your projects, or familiarize yourself with Git & github.

Some information about HacktoberFest 2023:

1. The celebration is run by DigitalOcean to celebrate and give back to open-source projects and software

2. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hacktoberfest, and it’s a great opportunity to support open source and connect with the open-source community

3. You can join the Hacktoberfest Discord to meet other members of the community and participate in various activities. Throughout the month, you can engage in virtual and in-person events, learn new skills, and meet lifelong friends

4. Major League Hacking is partnering with Hacktoberfest to help the community connect and win daily challenges during Global Hack Week. Let’s celebrate open source together this October! 🎉
