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, and where to find the best resources to help you do that.
