Hacktober Fest 2021

Hacktoberfest, in its 8th year, is a month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean. During the month of October, we invite you to join open-source software enthusiasts, beginners, and the developer community by contributing to open-source projects. You can do this in a variety of ways:

-- Prepare and share your project for collaboration

-- Contribute to the betterment of a project via pull requests

-- Organize an event

-- Mentor others

-- Donate directly to open source projects

How does this work?

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community! Maintainers determine if their open-source projects participate by adding the ‘hacktoberfest’ topic. Quality pull requests submitted on GitHub and GitLab are rewarded. Engaged maintenance of Hacktoberfest tagged repositories are rewarded. Ofcourse there are some certain rules to follow:

-- Pull requests can be made in any participating GitHub or GitLab hosted repository/projects. Look for the 'hacktoberfest' topic to know if a project is participating in Hacktoberfest.

-- You can sign up anytime between October 1 and October 31. Just be sure to sign up on the official Hacktoberfest website for your pull requests to count.

-- The pull request must contain commits you made yourself.

-- If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam, it will not be counted toward your participation in Hacktoberfest.

-- If a maintainer reports behavior that’s not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

-- A pull request is considered approved once it has an overall approving review from maintainers, or has been merged by maintainers, or has been given the 'hacktoberfest-accepted' label.
