Four ways to approach Hacktoberfest 2020
Hacktoberfest 2020 is here! I can't believe 2020 is winding down, good riddance!
I've been talking about Hacktoberfest with my co-worker Bryan and I thought of four different approaches to Hacktoberfest this year that I wanted to share.
Try to submit four pull requests in four different languages. As Drew DeVault writes: Hack everything without fear!
Similar to the previous one it could be fun to submit PRs against a project you've never been in before that's in a language you don't know. This could be anything from diving into Wordpress core, to working on some C for some Linux utilities, or even submitting PRs to open source Mac/iOS applications.
Go into a project and find the oldest issues and try to resolve them via PR. This is inspired by Richard Schneeman's video and post where he runs through 11 issues and 2 PRs in a hour and a half.
