The CDF’s Guide to Hacktoberfest

The CDF and its projects are participating in Hacktoberfest again this year (for the third year in a row)!

What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software when everyone is encouraged to support open source communities. The first 40,000 participants (maintainers and contributors) who complete Hacktoberfest can elect to receive one of two prizes: a tree planted in their name, or the Hacktoberfest 2022 t-shirt.

Everyone is invited to participate and contribute regardless of your background or experience.

Get Started

⚠️ To get started: sign-up to participate on the Hacktoberfest website.

Contribute to CDF Projects

Once you’re signed up with Hacktoberfest, you’re ready to contribute!

Each CDF project has unique contribution guidelines.

💡 Click on a project logo to find out how to contribute to it.

Important: we expect everyone participating to contribute valuable pull requests. Open source folks work hard to maintain great projects for their communities. The CDF is participating in Hacktoberfest to help the projects improve and to bring new contributors into the mix. We will identify any abuses, if they arise.

Top Contributors

At the end of Hacktoberfest, the top 3 contributors of each of the 6 participating CDF projects will be chosen and recognized/thanked on our website and channels.

Tell others

Share your involvement with other folks and get them to join in on the fun!
