Hacktoberfest starts Tomorrow

Hey Blender community, Hacktoberfest will soon be upon us this Tuesday October 1st! This is an event that runs during the month of October, meant to encourage the development of open source projects by rewarding pull requests with a cool custom T-shirt, stickers, and other rewards. The idea is to try and get new developers involved, either those new to software development completely or at least those new to the given project.

Contributions are tracked by allowing the above website read access to your GitHub contributions. Once you register, you must make four pull requests in October to qualify for a shirt. Last year nearly 50k people participated.

A cool project to contribute to that integrates with Blender is Armory3D. Feel free to add any project that’s an add-on or plugin for Blender.
