What this event about is to encourage contribute to Open Source, send in pull request. You can choose any project on Github and submit 4 pull request, the pull request does not need to be accepted in order to be a valid count. Pull request doesn’t always to be code changes, it can be documentation or content changes as well, as long as it is a pull request.
For myself, two of the requests is about adding content, and the other two request is about code changes.
- Pull request for adding WP Awesome list to the Core Awesome list. https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome/pull/387
- Pull request for adding Malaysia Laravel Facebook User Group to the Laravel Awesome list. https://github.com/chiraggude/awesome-laravel/pull/125
- Pull request for allowing HTML tag in Laracast Flash Package. https://github.com/laracasts/flash/pull/49
- Pull request to make Laravel Nexmo package Laravel 5 compatible. https://github.com/Artistan/nexmo/pull/6
Three months later finally I received the Hacktoberfest swag. It’s really a wonderful event, not only motivate us to send in pull request, we get some nice swag too !
