Hacktoberfest is an annual, month-long celebration of open source software, designed to drive participation in open source communities, have fun and get some neat swag!
To participate in the festivities, you will need:
amazee.io, being a fully open source company, and Lagoon, being a fully open source project are natural fits for the Hacktoberfest ethos, and we want 2020 to be epic!
With the release of Lagoon 2.0 still on track for release in the next couple of weeks, we appreciate that it may take time for our community to get up to speed and start contributing to it (although rapturous applause is due to anybody that does). With this in mind, we got together the brains trust to work out what the best approach to Hacktoberfest was for us.
One of Lagoon’s (and amazee.io’s) strengths is in the breadth of content management systems, frameworks and tools supported – we’ve got sites running Drupal, WordPress, Laravel, Python, Hugo, Gatsby (and a few others too) – but we don’t have a broad enough range of example projects, templates or guidance available. One of the most commonly raised concerns in our semi-regular office hour conversations is also that there is documentation for Drupal on Lagoon, but not much beyond that.
So here’s what we’re looking for:
What we’ll do for you:
We’re still evolving our strategy for how to best support a growing range of frameworks and CMS toolset – but one thing is for sure – we hate seeing people reworking a job already done!
For the super-keen, here are the repositories for Lagoon itself https://github.com/amazeeio/lagoon – we’ll still welcome any contributions there too!
