About this event

Hacktoberfest is a global celebration of open source software that takes place in October every year. It is a month-long event that encourages people to contribute to open source projects, regardless of their experience level.

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone, from seasoned developers to students and code newbies. All you need is a GitHub or GitLab account and a willingness to contribute.

To participate in Hacktoberfest, simply find a project that you are interested in and start contributing. You can find projects to contribute on Google Developer Student Clubs - MBU Github Profile.

Once you have found a project that you are interested in, read the project's contribution guidelines and find a way to contribute. This could involve fixing a bug, adding a new feature, or writing documentation.

Once you have completed a contribution, submit a pull request to the project's maintainers. If your pull request is accepted, it will count towards your Hacktoberfest total.

To complete Hacktoberfest, you must submit four accepted pull requests to opted-in repos on GitHub or GitLab. However, we encourage participation of all levels–you can also participate by completing a single PR/MR, making a donation to your favorite open-source project, or organizing or attending a virtual event.

Hacktoberfest is a great way to learn about open source software, contribute to the community, and develop your skills. It is also a fun and rewarding experience.

Benefits of participating in Hacktoberfest:

  • Learn about open source software and how to contribute to the community.
  • Develop your coding and software development skills.
  • Get involved in a global community of developers and contributors.
  • Earn a Hacktoberfest T-shirt and other swag.
  • Boost your resume and portfolio.

How to get started with Hacktoberfest:

  1. Create a GitHub or GitLab account (if you don't already have one).
  2. Sign up for Hacktoberfest on the official website.
  3. Find a project to contribute to. You can browse the Hacktoberfest website or search for the "hacktoberfest" topic on GitHub or GitLab.
  4. Read the project's contribution guidelines and find a way to contribute.
  5. Submit a pull request to the project's maintainers.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have completed four accepted pull requests.

Tips for participating in Hacktoberfest:

  1. Start early! Hacktoberfest is a popular event, and the best projects can fill up quickly.
  2. Don't be afraid to ask for help. If you are new to open source or to a particular project, don't hesitate to ask for help from the maintainers or from other contributors.
  3. Be patient. It may take some time for your pull requests to be reviewed and accepted.
