I found this on my travels around the internet, figured I’d share it here:
It’s Hacktoberfest 2016! Let’s celebrate open source!
To bring the Birmingham open source community together, intro eachother to our open source projects and contribute to the community.
Hacktoberfest—brought to you by DigitalOcean and GitHub—is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they’ve just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
