Hacktoberfest 2020 - completed!

I am participating in hacktoberfest for the second time, and it is amazing. I am also participating as a maintainer, and I have never seen so much activities on my projects.
Here are my 4 PR's:
Once again I have contributed to opsdroid:

Quick StartDocumentationPlaygroundBlogCommunity

An open source chatbot framework written in Python. It is designed to be extendable, scalable and simple.

This framework is designed to take events from chat services and other sources and execute Python functions (skills) based on their contents. Those functions can be anything you like, from simple conversational responses to running complex tasks. The true power of this project is to act as a glue library to bring the multitude of natural language APIs, chat services and third-party APIs together.

See our full documentation to get started.


This project exists thanks to all the people who contribute. [Contribute]

It is a really amazing platform for creating chat bots - like dialogflow, but open source, and you can create a bot for many platforms with just one config file, and you can create custom skills.
I have learned about testing signals in python code
Also I have learned about datasette project, which I might explore more and use later on.
Also I found nuclear:

It is pretty basic now, but I like the concept of a package manager, and I always wanted to create one-so I will either help this project or create my own :D Currently learning about creating lockfiles.
That's it! For sure it's not the end of hacktoberfest, as I will look into more repos, and I am of course welcoming contributions on my own repository:
