Hacktoberfest is Over!
Hacktoberfest was a month-long celebration of open source software (OSS) put together by DigitalOcean and DEV.

NEW: The Spin Up Program
The Spin Up will focus on expanding opportunities for historically underrepresented communities in the technology industry. Because we believe that technology should serve all communities, we’re stepping up to make sure more people know how to participate in the software development process.
Check the official project page for more information on how to participate and how to become a partner.
Happy hacking, and see you all next month!
