October is coming, and so is Hacktoberfest!
GitHub being my homepage, October month has always been a celebration for me. Every year, hundreds of thousands of developers across the globe mark their first ever contribution on GitHub during the month of October. Last year, 500+ pull requests were opened for my repositories. Helping hundreds of people to mark their identity on GitHub was ineffable. Here I come again to get you covered for your Hacktoberfest challenge!
Sometimes it's hard to know from where to start in contributing to open-source, and often you might not have a particular repository in mind that you'd like to contribute to. To get you ready, I’ve curated a list of beginner-friendly issues(repos) ahead of time so that you can get the ball rolling once Hacktoberfest kicks off.
Beginners, get a sneak peek at good first issues which are up for grabs. I don’t want you to be the only one without a T-shirt! I recommend you to get started with this issue, all you need to know is an inspirational quote! Voila, you're just a step away from opening your first pull request.
Since GSSoC'20, I have been working for an IoT based project that helps to monitor the water level in a tank and even alerts users in case of an overflow or water depletion. Water is perhaps the second most important substance on the Earth, after air. This system helps the user to keep a track of the water filling up in the tanks placed on the terrace. Mark your contribution towards this initiative to help address the pressing need of the hour, which is to conserve water.
Be it your first or fiftieth contribution, I wish you a great open-source journey. As they say sharing is caring, give a shoutout to Hacktoberfest2020 repository. Take time to encourage your friends to participate. They will thank you for it later!

As the world battles to curb the impact of the coronavirus, our one and only responsibility right now is to stay safe and practice social distancing.
