3 min read
Hi there! 👋
Tomorrow is September 1st, which means that Preptember has arrived, and Hacktoberfest is just around the corner! In preparation for October, the entire month of September is dedicated to learning and hunting for the repositories. Here I am back again to help you in completing the Hacktoberfest challenge!
It’s that time of year again when we come together to support and celebrate the open source technologies we use and love! Because GitHub is my homepage, the month of October has always been a time of celebration for me. Every year in October, hundreds of thousands of developers around the world make their first-ever contribution on GitHub. More than 500 pull requests were opened for my repositories last year. Helping hundreds of people to mark their identity on GitHub was ineffable. This year, Dev, Aman, Pranjal, and 13 amazing folks have joined me so far. I am thankful to the community members who have felt this way in mentoring newcomers.
It can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to contributing to open-source, especially if you don't have a particular repository in mind. To prep you, I've compiled a list of beginner-friendly issues(& repos) ahead of time so you hit the ground running as soon as Hacktoberfest begins.
Check out @vinitshahdeo/Hacktoberfest2021 repo.
Newbies have a look at some of the good first issues that are available in the Hacktoberfest2021 repo. I don't want you to be the only one who doesn't have a Hactoberfest tee!
Add more Inspirational Quotes: I encourage that you begin working on this issue right away; all you need is an inspirational quote! You're now a step away from submitting your first pull request.
Coder's way of wishing happy birthday: Do you have a better way to wish someone a "Happy Birthday"? What's holding you back from submitting a pull request here?
