As some of you may already know, DigitalOcean and DEV are arranging Hacktoberfest during the month of October, an event designed to get you contributing to Open Source Software. Here's how it works: Open 4 Pull Requests to any public repository on GitHub during the month of October, and DigitalOcean will mail you a beautiful t-shirt in your preferred size.
Python Discord will of course be participating in this event, as we have a number of public repos that you could make your contributions to. During October, you will see a number of changes related to this:
• The #event-hacktoberfest-2019 channel will be added to the Events category. In there, you will be able to discuss the event, ask us for help, and find helpful pins with guides and instructions for how to participate.
• We're changing the banner and the server icon to match the official Hacktoberfest 2019 neon/cyberpunk branding.
• Our SeasonalBot (A Discord bot made with all sorts of fun features for each season) will change season to the Halloween season, which means new bot commands will be made available. Some of these are spooky and scary, some are related to this event. For example, you can check your hacktoberfest progress with the .hackstats command.
To sweeten the pot, we're giving away additional prizes to the top contributors for our repos during October!. Two top contributors will win one of our limited edition Hacktoberfest PyDis t-shirts, and three runners up will walk away with 1 year licenses for any JetBrains product of their choosing.
All major contributors will also be receiving Contributor roles on the server, which grants access to our top-secret internal development channels!
So, dust off your powergloves, join us at https://discord.gg/python and head on over to https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/ to sign up!
