Contribute to Hacktoberfest 2018 at OpenGenus

We are excited to announce that we are participating in this year's Hacktoberfest! and the best part is that at OpenGenus, we have made our projects super contributor friendly so that anyone can contribute and win a cool t-shirt.

Hacktoberfest is sponsored by DigitalOcean, GitHub and Twilio (two of which are sponsors of OpenGenus as well. Yay!)

All types of contributions have been divided into three levels to help you identify the path you want to take:

  • level 1: Anyone with a drive to contribute
  • level 2: Anyone with a basic minimal knowledge of coding
  • level 3: Anyone with a coding experience who wants to develop a new feature
