🤝 How to Join with Your Project

If you wish to join HACK-TON-BERFEST with your project, follow these steps:

  1. Add repository Tags. Ensure your GitHub repository has the tags hacktoberfest and hack-ton-berfest.

  2. Include README file. Your README file should have clear instructions on how other developers can contribute to your project. Outline the steps required to get started, how to test changes, and how to submit a pull request.

  3. Create Issues. Create various issues in your repository and use the hacktoberfest and hack-ton-berfest tags, so participants can easily find them. It's a great idea to offer a range of issues of different complexities. This allows participants to pick something that matches their skillset and interests.

  4. Add Helpful Resources. To make it easier for contributors, consider attaching links to tutorials, documentation, video courses, or any other resources related to the issue. This helps participants understand the task better and allows them to complete it more efficiently.

  5. Communicate well. Add links to the official HACK-TON-BERFEST 2023 Telegram Group for general discussions and announcements. Additionally, provide a link to your project's specific communication channel, such as a Telegram group or Discord server, so that participants can directly reach out to you for project-specific questions or clarifications.
