Hacktoberfest 2020: Code, Repo and T-shirt

Less than a month ago I started my path to the Hacktoberfest 2020! I was desperate to impress my friends. I wanted my first T-shirt as a developer! But first a step back before…

What is Hacktoberfest?
Hacktoberfest is a monthlong celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean. It’s open to everyone.

What if I want to get my annual T-shirt?
You need to complete four requests via GitHub: when completing four pull requests, you will have the option to choose either a Hacktoberfest shirt in white or blue, OR the option to donate a tree. You will not have the option to choose both swag options.

What is Open Source?
Open source refers to source code that is publicly accessible and allows anyone to inspect, modify or learn from it. Open source projects encourage collaboration and the freedom to use the software for any purpose you wish.

Well, this year I took part in that journey (too late i think, my first pull request: 25 October 🤦‍♂️) and today I received an update:

Actually I ordered my personal limited edition T-shirt (and stickers, no shipping cost!) and I look forward to wearing it as a tribute to my passion, hobby and work: coding.

Well, I promised that I’ll wear in the next interview. This is a promise! Thank you Digital Ocean. Once and for all time, thank you Open Source!

I’ll update this article… stay tuned!
