It’s that time again, everyone: time for Hacktoberfest, the annual event for open source contributing, hosted by DigitalOcean! Like t-shirts and stickers and want to support your favorite open source projects? (cough Julia cough) Why not sign up and join the fun?
Participation is quite easy. All you need to do is sign up with your GitHub account and submit 4 pull requests to any GitHub-hosted project between 1 October and 31 October in any timezone. The PRs don’t need to be on any particular repo, nor all on the same repo. Contribute how you want, where you want.
To make it easy for Hacktoberfest participants to get started contributing to Julia, we’ve attached a Hacktoberfest label to issues suitable for new contributors. Participants don’t need to target these issues specifically, we’ve just chosen these to help you get started.
Do you have your own Julia package(s) and want contributors? Consider labeling some issues Hacktoberfest, as these are picked up by DigitalOcean’s project search. Also feel free to announce your project’s participation in this thread to increase visibility.
Happy hacking, everyone!
