Don’t Just Contribute To Open Source, Participate

An attempt to add an song to Deno in the name of Hacktoberfest

For the last couple of years, DigitalOcean has been running Hacktoberfest with the intent to contribute to open source by giving free t-shirts to people who send pull requests to open source repositories.

While it’s a nice idea it misses the mark and in practice the net results is sponsored spam as a service that wastes both the times of maintainers and contributors.
