Getting ready for Hacktoberfest on GitHub!

Free T-Shirts

Hacktoberfest is a unique time of year that brings new folks to open source repositories on GitHub in October, lured in by the promises of comfy t-shirts. However, special care should be given to minimize confusion and frustration in issue creation in order to encourage folks to help you out instead of someone else. I'll share some best practices for creating issues, so that people give useful PRs in response. This is going to be in the form of an informal chat, so feel free to come with questions or stories about your participation in Hacktoberfest, if you've done it before. Note: I have no official affiliation with GitHub or DigitalOcean. I just like the event and appreciate stickers and free t-shirts.
