Hello everyone,

I love participating on Hacktoberfest, and as I once had my first participation at this amazing event, every year is the first time to someone 😊

This year, I decided to make a post helping newcomers to find your project of ❀

But there is no fun if is only me recommending the projects...

So, I'm asking you to help me to create an awesome community based hacktoberfest warmup post \o/

The Idea is simple, make you pitch at the comments of this post presenting your recommended opensource project.

UPDATE: You don't need to be the owner of the project, you can pitch for your project of ❀️

The pitch rules:

  • Only one project per person
  • The project must have a contributing guide
  • The project must have beginner friendly issues
  • The pitch must be one paragraph only (please try to be brief as a tweet 🐦)

The post will be published 16 September 2019 here at dev.to (linked with this post) with your recommendations, so please post yours until 13 September 2019.

Hope you all enjoy it and Happy Friday πŸŽ‰

What a great idea! Here is my pitch:

EmojiScreen is a listing of TV shows πŸ“Ί, movies πŸ“½οΈand musicals 🎡depicted with emojis. This project was built to create a fun, judgement free space for those learning Git and Github to practice! Add a show or movie to contribute.

github.com/brittanyrw/emojiscreen

Late to this discussion, but I'd like to pitch the Accord Project, where I am a maintainer. I am taking the lead on trying to get participation this Hacktoberfest, and have done a lot of work to parse out as many beginner-friendly issues as I can in our projects.

Some brief information on the Accord Project: It is an ecosystem to build smart agreements and documents on a technology neutral platform, and tools for smart legal contracts.

We have an event page for our participation in Hacktoberfest here.

I don't have any OS projects of my own to recommend but I think #1 on your list needs to be this very site!

It blows my mind how many people don't know that dev.to is Open Source.
