Hacktoberfest 2023 with ILLA Cloud

Hacktoberfest is an annual month-long celebration of open source software, held every October. It is a global event that brings together developers, programmers, and enthusiasts from around the world to contribute to open source projects. Started by DigitalOcean in 2013, Hacktoberfest aims to encourage collaboration, foster community engagement, and promote the spirit of open source. This year, let’s celebrate Hacktoberfest’s 10th Anniversary 🎉

During Hacktoberfest, participants make meaningful contributions to open source projects via pull requests. This collaborative effort allows developers to actively engage with projects by fixing bugs, adding new features, improving documentation, and enhancing the overall user experience. By participating in Hacktoberfest, developers not only gain valuable skills and experience but also contribute to the growth and advancement of the open source community. As an additional incentive, completing the challenge earns limited-edition merchandise.
