🍻 What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open-source software.

This takes place from October 1st to October 31st, and you can sign up at any time during the month.

🎯 How Can I Participate?

Glad that you asked!

Have you been looking for an opportunity to contribute to a plugin you are using? Or maybe you want to share your own sample app - or add a missing framework version to an existing sample app? Been searching for a sign?

This is your sign!

This is your chance to give back to the amazing projects that you and others alike use on a daily basis and win prizes!

🎁 Wait! What Prizes?

The first 50,000 participants who post 4 pull requests in any public repo in GitHub will get a limited edition Hacktoberfest 2019 t-shirt.

If this is your first contribution to NativeScript, go and register for our first-time contributors program and get an additional reward!

🌟 What Types of Contributions Count?

No contribution is too small: bug fixes to documentation, updating plugin demos to latest {N} version, resolving sample app issues, creating new sample apps, etc, are all valid ways of participating.

🚀 Where Can I Get Help?
