Hacktoberfest

Fall is the perfect time of year to up your OSS contributions!

Now that in some countries, fall has arrived with colorful leaves, stormy weather, and fog, your indoor activities in October can revolve around contributing to open-source projects that could use some help.

Luckily for all of us, Digital Ocean has been running “Hacktoberfest” for 6 years now.

They also published a FAQ for successful participation in the event, both for maintainers and submitters.

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open-source software and is run by DigitalOcean and DEV.

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community. To participate, four pull requests must be submitted to public GitHub repositories. You can sign up anytime between October 1 and October 31.

The initiative is encouraging maintainers to add that label to their project issues and incentivizing active participants with some cool swag — T-shirts and stickers to the first 50,000 participants!

They also have a detailed page on getting started, rules and values, and fighting spam.

Like last year, for the Neo4j Ecosystem, we have a number of projects that are participating in this cool idea.

If you maintain a project in our ecosystem and want to be highlighted, please add those labels to your issues, and let us know too: devrel@neo4j.com.

Happy October-Hacking!
