Hacktoberfest 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. Participants submit 5 pull requests to Github-hosted repositories
To encourage participation, we've put together a calendar of events for the month and hope that you’ll want to add your event (or make a new one) to this list.
