It is the 9th season of Hacktoberfest, and we are so excited to announce we are taking part in it! This year we’re upping the game with our cool stickers, special edition T-shirts, and next-level merch. Have fun, learn and contribute!
Hacktoberfest is DigitalOcean’s annual event that encourages people to contribute to open source throughout October. Hacktoberfest is all about giving back to the community by contributing to open-source projects. The main point of Hacktoberfest is encouraging new open-source contributors whether you’re a seasoned contributor or looking for projects to contribute to for the first time, you’re welcome to participate!
Iterative is a remote-first team on a mission to solve the complexity of managing datasets, ML Infrastructure, and ML model lifecycle management. It was started in 2018 by a data scientist and an engineer to fill in the gaps in the machine learning to production. Presently Iterative is growing pretty fast, adoption of the Iterative tools has significantly increased, and we have our contributors to thank (more than 300 in both code and docs) for developing open source projects such as DVC, CML, and MLEM with us.
The most exciting part about being involved in the open-source community is that no matter how small or big your contributions are, the community will welcome your efforts and collaborate with you positively, sharing feedback and expressing gratitude.
If you haven’t started your Hacktoberfest challenge yet, it is just the right time; you have 4 weeks left to submit PRs and get your swag! Here are some important details:
And the special addition from the Iterative team:
At Iterative our mission is to deliver the best developer experience for machine learning teams by creating an ecosystem of open, modular ML tools. Our tools are built for developers, by developers and we need help from the global - open-source community - to deliver this mission!
For all of us who have a heart for open source — let’s discuss, contribute, learn, take the technologies forward and build something great together!
