What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio — is a month-long celebration of open source software.  And it has one special evening of a great importance. Under the cloak of night, developers grab a glass of cold drink, put their heads together and resolve the most challenging issues. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating. 

Developers, join us!

Junior or Senior – no matter! Interest in open source projects and basic knowledge of English is all you need. To first-timers, we will show how easy it is to contribute to a sample open-source repository. Experienced contributors will have a chance to pick from issues we have prepared in Kentico GitHub repositories or any other issue on GitHub. We will do our best trying to help you solve them!

Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is mainly a virtual event, open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.

Hacktoberfest offers a lot

1. Shape up your GitHub Portfolio

Every experience counts! And every issue you'll resolve can catch the attention of your future boss. Hacktoberfest is a great opportunity to collect swag and build yourself a great profile.

2. Win a T-shirt

Open up 5 pull requests between October 1 and October 31 and you'll win a free, limited edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt!

Pull requests don't have to be merged and accepted; as long as they've been opened between the very start of October 1 and the very end of October 31, they count towards a free T-shirt.

Make sure, you sign up on the Hacktoberfest site first.

3. Meet interesting people, learn and share

Four of our Senior Developers will keep you company, introduce you how it goes at Kentico and help you with „hacking“. But you will definitely meet outsiders as well. Maybe even your future colleagues. Hack, drink and have dinner together!
