Hacktoberfest 2022 at Redis

Let's collaborate this October!

Hacktoberfest is a month-long online festival which takes place every year in October. It is sponsored by DigitalOcean and aims to encourage people to get involved in open source projects.

How to get involved

Through October, we at Redis are creating a number of GitHub issues for folks who want to contribute to our documentation and demo apps. View our list of current open issues.

Finding and working on an issue

  1. Look for a suitable issue on GitHub. Where possible, we have tagged them according to the skillset and level of experience required.

  2. Read the guidance notes on each issue carefully so you know what's expected of you.

  3. Add a comment in the issue stating that you're working on it. To be fair to other contributors, only claim one issue at a time.

When you do this, your pull request will then be automatically referenced in the issue:

  1. We will review your pull request. If it's suitable, we'll merge it and add the hacktoberfest-accepted label. If we feel that further work is required, we'll comment as part of our review.

Make sure you read and understand DigitalOcean's complete Hacktoberfest rules before you start.
