Hack alongside us during the entire month of October!
Thanks to DigitalOcean, the organization behind Hacktoberfest, people can now contribute to open source projects that are hosted on GitLab.com (see blog post announcement). It’s easy, sign up on the Hacktoberfest website using your GitLab account and explore the available projects to contribute.
Project maintainers who want their projects to participate in Hacktoberfest should follow the steps described on the Hacktoberfest website.
To celebrate the launch of Hacktoberfest on the GitLab ecosystem, we’re offering GitLab swag to the five contributors with the highest number of accepted merge requests to the GitLab open source project. Merge requests to GitLab created in October 2021 and merged by the 15th of November will count towards this initiative. We’re also sending GitLab swag to all contributors whose first merge request to the GitLab open source project is created and merged during that time, so newcomers are very welcome!
We are excited to join DigitalOcean during the launch of Hacktoberfest on GitLab, and look forward to your contributions. If you’d like to share your story with us, please reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org or the Contributors Gitter Channel. Happy contributing!
