Hacktoberfest is back for the 6th year, and here’s everything you need to know!

I’ve gotten Hacktoberfest shirts the past two years, and I wear them with pride.
In this quick article, I’ll show you how you can participate in Hacktoberfest.

What is Hactoberfest ?

Hacktoberfest is a month long celebration of open source software. It was started by Digital Ocean in 2014.

Why should you participate ?

Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host or company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. It doesn’t need to be code. It can be even documentation. Quality contributions are encouraged!
By participating you are supporting open source and there are loads of cool swag up for grabs 😉

Free swag ?

Yes! T-shirts and stickers will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis to the first 50,000 participants who successfully complete the Hacktoberfest challenge.

How to get started ?

Register at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/ . Then, submit at least four PRs ( pull request ) to any public GitHub repository during the entire month of October.

Celebrate Hacktoberfest with the global open source community.
I hope you’ll contribute to the open source community, learn a few new things, and have fun in the process !
