Getting the Most Out Of Hacktoberfest – Part 2

So, how’s your Hacktoberfest coming? Got a few PRs in for your favorite projects? Have you learned something new, or gone to a Hacktoberfest event? If not, there’s still time. And we have an added bonus, our amazing design team has put together some new stickers for our Hacktoberfest participants! Check these out:

You want these. I want these! So how are we going to get them?

  3. Stickers away! We’ll collect your mailing info at the end of the month.
