Participate in Hacktoberfest on CircleCI!
For the first time, CircleCI is joining Hacktoberfest!
Hacktoberfest is a month-long event beginning October 1, that encourages participants from around the world to contribute to open-source projects. The challenge issued to developers is to submit four quality pull requests during the month of October to any public, open source repository on GitHub. Developers who complete this challenge will win a limited edition 2019 Hacktoberfest T-shirt.
This year, we’ve decided to provide our own challenge to encourage participation in Hacktoberfest on CircleCI. We will be awarding participants who complete four pull requests for CircleCI orbs with our own custom 2019 “#Orbtoberfest” T-shirt and stickers.

For Orb Authors
Hacktoberfest provides a great opportunity for the community to get involved in both improving and using orbs.
To prepare your orb for Hacktoberfest, we suggest doing the following:
Make sure your orb repositories are properly tagged with the ‘circleci-orbs’ topic. Users will know to look for repositories with this tag, so this is a good way to steer traffic towards your orb.
Check out How to add a topic to your repo to add the ‘circleci-orbs’ tag. When you’ve successfully tagged your repository, your orb should appear here
Open issues for your orb and label them with ‘orbtoberfest’ and ‘hacktoberfest’.
To be listed on our Hacktoberfest landing page, we recommend that you open issues for potential improvements, feature requests, and bug fixes.
Refer to our Best Practices Guide to help identify opportunities to improve your orb
Check out how to create a label on GitHub issues for tips on adding a new label.
Update your orb documentation.
Thank you and have a happy Hacktoberfest!
