  • It's about Open Source & Community 
  • Open Source

    • Programs where the underlying source code that powers it is available to view, modify and update 

  • Community

    • Anybody contributing or using to open source (or those just interested in it too 😉)

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

  • Get a free a limited edition T-shirt!

  • Make five pull requests (PRs)

  • To any public repo on GitHub

  • This year, the first 50,000 of you can earn a T-shirt (compared with 30,000 in 2017).

  • Github is where it is today due to both open source and community
    • Github allows you to host your open source code and provides a way for the community to contribute back
    • Utilises git as the version control system 
    • Adds a nice web interface to git and adds special features like Pull Requests that enable easier contribution
