Using a GitHub organization to organize blog posts — also accidentally hacking Hacktoberfest!
I’m finding my GitHub repositories list to be becoming unmanageable, maybe it’s just because I fork everything rather than star it, though sometimes I do that as well.
I wanted to try something to help with a portion of the organization of my repositories — creating a GitHub organization that houses the code I was using to accompany my blog posts.
The organization was simple enough to do, hopefully I’m not breaking any rules by doing so. And now, all of my blog posts’ code (not much) is organized in a single place!
https://github.com/Kritner-Blogs is the location of my organization, and you can see that I currently (at the time of writing) have 2 repositories of code:
What does this all have to do with Hacktoberfest? What even ***IS*** Hacktoberfest? You can read all about it here. But the tldr; of it is:
Write code and submit PRs during the month of October, and get free stuff!
An unintended (but welcome!) consequence of creating the GitHub organization, was my commits (PRs) to my organization/blog posts repositories counted toward my 5 PRs in the month of October. Granted, I already had my 5 PRs when I discovered this, but it was a nice surprise nonetheless.
Still almost 25k challenge completions to go before they stop giving out free Hacktoberfest shirts! Hack on my dudes!
