Hacktoberfest 2016

Celebrate open source this October by participating in Hacktoberfest, a month-long festival of code organized by our friends at DigitalOcean and hosted on GitHub.

To participate, simply open a pull request and contribute to any open source project. You can fix a bug, add a feature, or even improve some documentation. If you’ve never contributed to an open source project before, check out our contributing to open source guide.

Once you’ve made your contribution, tell the world about it with the #hacktoberfest hashtag on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. 🎉

If you make four pull requests by October 31st, you’ll get the satisfaction of sharing your code with the world—and a t-shirt, of course.
