Hacktoberfest 2021 is a month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean. During the month of October, we invite you to join open-source software enthusiasts, beginners, and the developer community by contributing to open-source projects. You can do this in a variety of ways:
- Prepare and share your project for collaboration
- Contribute to the betterment of a project via pull requests
- Organize an event
- Mentor others
- Donate directly to open source projectsHow Does it Work?
Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community!
Maintainers determine if their open-source projects participate by adding the ‘hacktoberfest’ topic.
Quality pull requests submitted on GitHub and GitLab are rewarded.
Engaged maintenance of Hacktoberfest tagged repositories are rewarded.
Everyone is welcome
Participants in Hacktoberfest come from all over the world and represent thousands of unique skill sets. This program welcomes everyone who’s already part of the open source software community, and anyone who is interested in “diving in”.
Quantity is fun, quality is key
Participating in Hacktoberfest 2021 leads to personal growth, professional opportunities, and community building. However, it all begins with meaningful contributions to open source software. We are committed to prioritizing quality contributions as outlined in our participation rules.
Short-term action, long-term impact
In the open source software community, we are standing on the shoulders of project maintainers and those who came before us. Your participation has a lasting effect on people and technology long after October.
