Are you ready to get your Hacktoberfest on? We want to help you. DailyDrip will be holding a Remote Hackathon to help people contribute to open source projects to get their Hacktoberfest PRs in. DailyDrip’s Remote Hacktoberfest Hackathon will be from Oct. 13th - 15th, but Hacktoberfest is all month long.
We'll be working on Elixir and Elm projects ourselves, but we'll help people with *any project in any language. *
Hacktoberfest is a month long celebration of Open Source Software. The premise is simple: submit four open source contributions on GitHub, and get a free limited-edition T-Shirt(from Digital Ocean & GitHub). Last year contributors submitted more than 90,000 pull requests during Hacktoberfest. You can read more about Hacktoberfest 2017 on Digital Ocean’s website.

Soft skills are as critical as technical skills for a software engineer. No one works in isolation. Each person has to deal with teammates, colleagues, managers, etc. Therefore team interpersonal skills are essential too. Soft skills include things like good communication, honesty, teamwork, integrity, organization, empathy, etc.
