Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software when everyone is encouraged to support open source communities. The CD Foundation and some of our projects (CDEvents, Jenkins, Ortelius, Shipwright, and Tekton) participated for the fourth year this October. More details
We believe it was a great decision from DigitalOcean to remove the free t-shirt giveaways, which created the contribution race in the past. Our participating projects found that, although the number of contributions was smaller than previous years (30% less in Jenkins’ case), they received better pull requests and found that the contributors engaged with their communities—some even joined the Ortelius project meetings!
We plan to participate again next year but would like to encourage you all to keep contributing throughout the year. View all CDF Projects
