Virtual Coffee Hacktoberfest 2022 Roundup

Another Hacktoberfest has come and gone!

This was Virtual Coffee’s third Hacktoberfest (🤯) and it was another great one! Our members just knocked it out of the park as usual, and we wanted to take some time out to celebrate!

Our Virtual Coffee Hacktoberfest Initiative (VCHI) is an annual event where our members come together to help each other contribute to open source and hopefully complete Digital Ocean’s Hacktoberfest Challenge. Some of our members are maintainers of their own repos, some sign up as mentors for members who are new to open source, and some sign up just to receive Hacktoberfesting (Or Hacktoberfestering if you’re Dan),


This year we had a fantastic team of volunteers helping the maintainers with things going on – so a very special Thank you Dominic Duffin, Enrico La Cava, Joe Caro, Lucia Cerchi, Nick Taylor.


We started the month with three great Hacktoberfest/Open Source videos and a podcast episode with our maintainers:

We had 56 members as contributors, stock maintainers and consultants. Here are some cool stats and shoutouts from VCHI 2022:
