It’s Hacktoberfest 2020! Vonage is Excited to Partner with Hacktoberfest and Celebrate Open Source

This October, Vonage is partnering with Hacktoberfest to encourage and celebrate contributions to the Open Source community. We’re no strangers to Open Source, with our libraries, code snippets and demos all on GitHub.

Vonage is looking forward to supporting participants, sharing knowledge and discussing how important open source contributions can be. Vonage will be delivering Hacktoberfest-themed events, blog posts and daily Twitch streams throughout the month.

What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest —made possible by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of Open Source software. Participants are required to register and make four valid pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 to complete the challenge and receive a prize. It is a key event in the Open Source community’s calendar and a great opportunity for Vonage and our 60,000+ developers to engage, participate and contribute. It also allows us to give back to the community that helps power our products and services.

Who Is Hacktoberfest For and How to Get Started?

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, a student learning to code, an event host, or a company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating. Care to know more?
