Help build Carbon — Hacktoberfest 2019
Forget smashing pumpkins. Let’s squash bugs.
If you haven’t heard of IBM’s Carbon Design System before, check us out! We’re a design system built by IBM, shipping open-source styles and components in Vanilla, React, Angular, and Vue for anyone building on the web.
As the temperature in Austin, Texas hovers at 95 degrees, we’ve come to the sobering realization that it’s October, and our favorite holiday is here. Back in the box went the cobwebs and spooky wreaths, and out came the backlogged GitHub issues. IBM’s Carbon team is ready to rock for Hacktoberfest, and we’re excited for you to join us.
We’ll let the folks at DigitalOcean explain.
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors toward issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they’ve just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
DigitalOcean is ready to send you a free shirt for four pull requests. We’ll send you a shirt for two. That’s right — we’ll ship a shirt to the first 50 people who open two qualifying pull requests in the Carbon monorepo during the month of October.
How to participate
First, sign up on DigitalOcean’s event homepage. They explain everything you need to do to score some free Hacktoberfest swag. Next, head over to our GitHub repo. The Carbon team found some great first issues to tackle. Just sort by the Hacktoberfest tag to find a good first project.
Once you’ve submitted two PRs to Carbon, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to the PRs and we’ll get back to you with details.
Check out our contribution docs and let us know if you have any questions. We’re excited to work with you, and happy Hacktoberfest!
