What project did you contribute to for Microsoft ??? I had a hard time looking for one that was beginner friendly. Any suggestions, the oss portal seemed like a good one but the dev environment setup docs were non existent.

Same here, I wanted to get one from MS but couldn't find anything noob-worthy.

Same haha I really liked the gophers on the shirt, wanted one. Sadly looking at go code isn't something I'm familiar with quite yet.

I found some Azure starters/samples that weren't too bad to contribute to. There are a lot out there with outdated dependencies and pretty skimpy docs.

Same! I was looking for Android projects and the libraries and repos seemed archaic! I had so many questions and the project has a modicum amount of issues raised 3 years ago.

I completed the challenge first day. Perks of being full-time #OpenSourcerer. My first PR of October was for Dev.to I think. Also contributed to Microsoft repos. Did you already get a t-shirt from MSFT? I have not. What am I missing?

Yes! I've been mainly pushing directly to Learn Code from Us though for efficiency purposes, or else I'd have a lot more there! Same with Zen of Programming.

Yeah, definitely easier to commit directly early on projects (or forever depending on project workflow and roles)

Just about! Unfortunately only four of my PRs were to projects that weren't on my account, so I suppose I somewhat cheated.

However, my "How Old Is it?" project received 141 pull requests from 90 people, not counting my own. At least one of those was the final PR someone needed to get their t-shirt, so I am pretty thrilled.

I hope that absolves me of my skirting of the rules. </self-horn-tooting>

I hope everyone had a happy Hacktoberfest! Same time next year? 😎

I did! I wanted to do more, but I spent the first half of the month in the hospital, so I only got like 6 public PRs in. Hopefully I'll do better next month.

Shameless plug for the Pyvideo data project. It's super welcoming for beginners. We index Python videos in every language we can find. Most of the videos we capture are conference talks or meetup presentations. Check it out and consider helping us refine the data, especially if you speak Spanish, Russian, or Japanese.

Mine says it's going to arrive today! I'm really excited to wear it tomorrow.

For anyone looking to do some last-minute PRs: My friendship circle implementation of the webring concept has some open issues, and I think 24 and 28 should be pretty accessible!

You should get a follow-up email from Kotis Design that has a link to track your package, I believe.

I managed to make it to 6 this year! I managed to snag the Microsoft shirt and fix some broken docs for Gatsby so I got a t-shirt and stickers for $2 with the coupon code.

Did you get 5 PRs submitted total?

The challenge is just to submit, not to merge, so you may be all good!

Got all my PRs in and my shirt is on its way in a few weeks. I actually get asked about these shirts at meetups and talks, people want to know what projects I contributed to. It's a nice ice breaker.
