Over 250 Pull Requests Submitted to This Dot Labs' Repos for Hacktoberfest 2021

Hacktoberfest 2021 wrapped up on Halloween, closing out the 8th annual celebration of open-source contributions!

If you aren’t familiar with Hacktoberfest, it is a month-long open-source program that challenges developers to contribute four pull requests to open-source repositories on Github during the month of October. Participants register with Hacktoberfest before or during the month, contribute their pull requests before November, and then either receive a tee shirt or have a tree planted in their name as a reward.

This year, This Dot Labs wanted to offer developers at all levels an opportunity to participate in Hacktoberfest by contributing to a group of repositories that gather various community resources, from podcasts to conferences.

Over the month of October, we were thrilled to collect resources provided by thirtyfive individual developers:

@tyrelchambers @regromrob @alicenstar @JeffMarvin @NachoVazquez @brokenmold @Nerajno @twocs @mithleshfantezie @jdwilkin4 @kpflug @afonsocarlos @Rreiso @LukeCantCode @ikeadeoyin @lindakatcodes @mvisic @debrakayeelliot @CIJarvis @afrizalhan @RoxieElliot @Zelig880 @BlazOrezem @tvanantwerp @lyndseybrowning @stevenspads @nicoolel @SuzeShardlow @lilyruth @vedantvijay @greywillfade @meera-ramesh19 @yobee333 @runningdeveloper @jmhobbs

And these awesome developers, made up of employees at This Dot Labs and members of the international JavaScript community, contributed to and helped design seven living repositories which you can check out below:

thisdot / tech-podcasts thisdot / tech-meetups thisdot / tech-dev-tooling thisdot / tech-learning-resources thisdot / tech-bootcamps thisdot / tech-newsletters thisdot / tech-conferences

Can I still contribute?

Even though Hacktoberfest is over, This Dot Labs is excited to continue maintaining these repositories to offer helpful resources to the JavaScript community, and provide a fun and easy avenue for new developers to submit pull requests while sharing their favorite resources.
