About Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest is a month-long (Oct 1 to Oct 31) event, celebrating open source software and its community.

Participants can get a Hacktoberfest T-shirt or choose to plant a tree if they successfully make 4 valid pull requests (Sidenote: PRs have to be merged, approved by a maintainer OR labelled as hacktoberfest-accepted) to any GitHub hosted open source projects that have opted in with putting #hacktoberfest in their topics.

Most importantly, it’s free and open for everyone. All you need to attend is your GitHub account and then register at the official website.

About Jina

Jina is an open-source search framework powered by deep-learning technology, empowering developers to build cross-modal or multi-modal search systems for text, images, video, and audio.

As a fairly young open source project, Jina was first released on GitHub in April 2020. The project is currently under heavy development and is maintained by a full-time, venture-backed team.

Thus, this is a great opportunity for contributors to make real impact. πŸ’» πŸ™‹

To give you some idea about how Jina can be used in the real world, here are some use cases created by our community members:

But of course, there are more possibilities to be explored!

Jina’s core components are written mostly in Python. We also make use of other open source software stacks such as Tensorflow, Docker, PyTorch, Hugging Face, etc.

Check out Jina’s repo on Github!
