Accord Project is proudly participating in this years Hacktoberfest!

What is Hacktoberfest?

DigitalOcean and DEV have partnered up for a month-long celebration of open-source software (OSS). This event takes place for the entire month of October, and you can sign up at any time during the month. This event facilitates the ability to be a part of a growing movement to encourage and contribute to open-source software.

This is the seventh year the event has taken place, so happy seventh years of Hacktoberfest to DigitalOcean! We are excited to be participating for our second year in the event.

Key Takeaways

  • Contribute code or documentation to Accord Project repositories
  • Look for issues labeled with the tag ‘Hacktoberfest‘ and the difficulty level you’re keen to undertake
  • See the official Hacktoberfest page for details on their leaderboard and swag qualification
Why Get Involved?

This is an excellent opportunity to contribute and give back to the amazing projects you and others use on a daily basis. Even more, a chance to build stronger products and have your voice heard! There is great enthusiasm in the OSS field, and we want people to take advantage of this!

Active and engage contributors makeup the backbone of every open source community. So whether you are writing code, filing bugs, updating documentation, or sharing ideas, community members help build stronger products and improve the overall understanding for everyone.

How To Get Involved

Sign up to the event on the DigitalOcean Hacktoberfest site. You can then head to GitHub and peruse through open-source projects with the ‘Hacktoberfest’ label. Perhaps check out OSS projects you use every day, they might be participating!

If you have never contributed to OSS before, there is a great guide which can get you up to speed before you start adding real value to projects that people depend on every day.
