Hacktoberfest, the month-long festival of supporting and contributing to open-source, is back again this year. To participate all you have to do is make four pull requests between October 1st and October 31st and you’ll get a free t-shirt. Limited to the first 75,000 participants.
Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host, or company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge.
Hacktoberfest is a celebration open to everyone in our global community.
- Pull requests can be made in any GitHub-hosted repositories/projects.
- You can sign up anytime between October 1 and October 31.
To earn your Hacktoberfest tee or tree reward, you must register and make four valid pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone). PRs can be made to any public repo on GitHub, not only the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate. This year, the first 75,000 participants who successfully complete the challenge will be eligible to receive a prize.
To get started here is a list of Laravel projects looking for help, but first visit the official Hactoberfest site to register, read the full rules and regulations, and get started submitting those pull requests.
