Let’s code, share and learn. Calling ABAPers to next edition of #Hacktoberfest
When I “navigate” through another developers communities I see how they are strong in terms of open source world. Seeing this I started a digital event here in last year (can be read here) to promove this initiative.
The Hacktoberfest it’s a event created for encourage contributions to the open source ecosystem. It’s a better way to all enhance your abilities, learn and share. This is a anual event and as name proposes, start in October. More information can be read here.
How to participate
Prerequisites (All obligatory)
- Must have a Github account and know how to use it (If you never access a github, read this);
- For all want to contribute, click here to find the available projects to contribute.
The Hacktober team will offer for the first 50.000 developers where make 5 pull requests in October a t-shirt and I’ll give a book from sap press for the user who create more pull requests in the ABAP Projects.
Pull requests are considered valid:
- Who make a valid change in one ABAP project;
- This change had a code review from the collaborators of the current project.
Very cool. I'm kind of late reading this. And I must say I - like many of you - find myself with no time to join.
I'll be looking forward to seeing the result(s).
Many thanks for your time Michelle !
Yeah, have a time is really complicated, I assume, but when you have one, participate. We need to promove this open source idea in our community.
P.S.: Tomorrow I'll publish the current ranking.
I am also trying to promote open source in the ABAP world, which is why I made this abap turtle graphics contest: https://blogs.sap.com/2019/10/12/abapturtle-make-something-pretty-in-abap-and-possibly-win-prizes/
Since a sumbission to the graphics contest requires submitting the code used to generate the image, would you consider that a "valid change in an ABAP project"?
Hmmmmm, You got me hehehe. Yes, it can be valid.
Also, awesome project.
