Introduction To Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of Free and Open Source software during October, which is organised by Digital Ocean and sponsored by DEV, and aims to get more folks dipping their toes in contributing to Free and Open Source software, and showing everyone that there's more to a project than just code!

HacktoberFest is there to encourage you to take part in Open Source. If you are beginner there are many ways to find issues you can help with which you can read about here. In return for braving the world of OSS (Open Source Software), you get some awesome Hacktoberfest swag including t-shirts and stickers.
