With Hacktober coming to an end, we would like to take a moment to appreciate the overwhelming support and contributions we've seen the past month. It was our debut in this year's fest, and we feel like we've kicked the door in with our powerful community.
We are incredibly humbled by the participation of so many new and existing community members over this past month. As a young company, it is incredible to see how old, more experienced community members helped guide new ones getting started while others teamed up to find solutions and helped extend the plugin suite of Medusa.
In the end, the effort led to the production of almost 100 pull requests and three new plugins. Likewise, many new developers joined our community, and we are excited to see you build more with Medusa in the future.
A quick glimpse of the results achieved during this October:
- ~100% new Discord members
- 64 merged pull requests
- 21 pull requests in review
Plugins in development:
We are grateful for all your contributions!
Swag. As described in the Hacktoberfest announcement article, every contributor will receive special Medusa swag as an appreciation gift. Our small token of gratitude to all of you that took the time to participate in the Hacktober. The send-outs will happen during November - we cannot wait to send them out.
Wall of appreciation. Our website will soon feature a wall of appreciation displaying all Medusa contributors. There is no fix or feature too small for this wall, so no reason to hold back if you want to see yourself in there.
Community chat. At last, we wanted to invite you all to an in-person Zoom chat on Friday the 5th of November. Here we will gladly welcome everyone from our community to a chat about commerce, Medusa, and all things community-related. For more info, please follow along in our Discord during the following days.
The opportunity to contribute and get involved in the development process of Medusa is not limited to Hacktoberfest. We will keep welcoming new community members just as we've done the past month. You can follow our contribution guide to get started.
We strive to always have issues that are up for grabs so that everyone can take part. If you have your ideas or feature requests, you can find the entire Medusa team on our Discord server.
Hope to see you there!
