What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean and DEV. It encourages individuals of all skill levels to engage with open source software by completing four pull requests to a public repository during the month of October. The event is open to everyone in our global community and no contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Contributing to CircleCI orbs is one easy way to complete the Hacktoberfest challenge. Orbs are open source, reusable packages of config that can help speed up development and connect your favorite tools to your CI pipeline. At our event, we'll briefly discuss how you can complete the Hacktoberfest challenge by improving an existing orb, how to implement a security component and where to find the best resources to help you do that.

Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe.

Rules and prizes

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site, registration will open on October 1 and close on October 31. Then, you’ll need to make four pull requests during the month of October to qualify for the official limited-edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

To be eligible for a custom CircleCI Hacktoberfest shirt, you must make four pull requests to CircleCI orb repos. Once you’ve made your four pull requests, tag them with ‘orbtoberfest’ and fill out our Google form.

Please read the Events Code of Conduct before attending the meetup. Happy hacking!
