My first Hacktoberfest, 2 PR merged so far (one it's from September 30, didn't wait until the next day to send it), so I am quite happy.

Since bigger projects have a lot of attention I'm focusing on smaller projects with the hacktoberfest label.

It feels really good, I think I may continue contributing after this, there is much to do, from test coverage, help with the Docs, etc! this is madness!

This is a great idea. I think I'll find some smaller OSS with test needs.

This will be my first Hacktoberfest and I was having quite a bit of anxiety trying to pick something to work on.

But I'm gonna try sifting through stuff tonight and try to find some way to contribute to something!

I made a PR to facebook, they were super nice and helpful. Just pull the trigger most of the OSS community is ultra-supportive if they aren't go to a project with a better community 😁 best of luck buddy 🤩

Going good! I made 4 PRs and thought of continuing but then I noticed that my 5th PR was not being tracked. I wanted to have more PRs because I'm afraid that there's a chance the repo that I made a PR may be marked as a bad repo and my contribution won't get counted. Oh well. I guess I'll have to wait for 7 days. It is very fun, though! Been a developer for so long but it's my first time joining an event like this.

My plans for HacktoberFest was just to participate, but on a whim I decide to turn my wish lists for my project into issues and label them. To my my utter surprise people have come and completed them! I’m really quite moved by the whole experience!

I have had a very similar experience. Awesome to see people coming out of the woodwork and helping. Some are even coming up with new cool features to I hadn't thought of.
