October is looming, and for open source communities and contributors this means one thing: Hacktoberfest.
What is Hacktoberfest?
Hacktoberfest is a time to contribute to open source, improve your skills, and build greater technology in the process. Last year during Hacktoberfest 483,127 pull requests were opened and 61,871 people completed the challenge.
To do our part, Supabase has planned a couple of events and activities throughout Hacktober, and we'd love for you to join us!
How do I get started?
It's simple, just start contributing to any open source project. If you've never contributed to open source, don't worry! Here are some resources to get you started:
- How to write your first pull request
- How to create a good commit message
- Beginner resources for first-timers
- Hacktoberfest’s quality standards

Contribute to Supabase and win a Hacktoberfest T-Shirt
We've created a GitHub project board to keep track of what's happening and can enjoy collaborating and hacking together 🥳
You can contribute to one of the existing
hacktoberfest issue, or you can grab one of the ideas from the notes in the project board and open a new issue for it. Make sure to tag the newly created issue with the
hacktoberfest label. This will be important for you to have a chance at getting the limited edition Hacktoberfest T-Shirt. See the participation rules for more details.
I'm a Developer
Awesome, we've got a selection of small and larger engineering tasks. From creating examples for Blitz.js and Redwood.js to Postgres templates for various use cases.
I'm a Designer
Nice, we would love your help with UX improvements, illustrations, loading pages, or lottie animations.
I'm a Writer
Yay, we'd love your help with improving and adding docs!
We'd love to see you at one of our events and have you contribute to Supabase throughout Hacktoberfest! See you on the interweb 🙂
