What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest is DigitalOcean’s annual event that encourages people to contribute to open source throughout October.

By contributing to open source, you can get a t-shirt (or a tree planted!) upon submitting four contributions to open source projects. See the Hacktoberfest site for more details.

JuliaActuary participation

JuliaActuary has a number of “issues” with the hacktoberfest tag on Github across all the repositories which identify “easier” or introductory contribution ideas. See this project board for items with the hacktoberfest tag or browse individual packages’ issues page.

If you participate and submit at least two of your contributions to JuliaActuary, we will mail you a JuliaActuary sticker as thanks!


Low-code or no-code contributions

We welcome contributions that have low or no-code in them. That could be as simple as new documentation, changing some website CSS, writing a blog post about your experience, etc. Hacktoberfest has a list of low/no-code suggestions.

If you have ideas but aren’t sure where to begin, start a discussion here: https://github.com/orgs/JuliaActuary/discussions.
