Support Open-Source Code with @GitHub Pull Requests | #ElectronicHalloween #Hacktoberfest @digitalocean
Digital Ocean are running Hacktoberfest again this year and in partnership with GitHub if you make four pull requests during the month of October you can get a limited edition t-shirt for your open-source contributions. Cool! So no your code contribution doesn’t have to be for Halloween-specific repositories but as open-source goes you’re contributing to a greater good which may or may not be used by your neighbor for their Halloween lawn displays 🙂
Now a slight caveat when participating you are connecting Digital Ocean to your GitHub account, like so:
But if you already trust GitHub with your personal details then you probably trust the organizations they partner with – you’ll also get a shirt with an awesome logo for your participation:
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Every day this month we’ll be bringing you ideas and projects for an Electronic Halloween! Expect wearables, hacks & mods, costumes and more here on the Adafruit blog! Working on a project for Halloween this year? Share it with us on Google+, in the comments below, the Adafruit forums, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter— we’d love to see what you’re up to and share it with the world (tag your posts #ElectronicHalloween). You can also send us a blog tip! Tune in to our live shows, 3D hangouts with Noe and Pedro and Ask an Engineer, featuring store discount codes, ideas for projects, costumes, decorations, and more!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
