Milvus, the vector database empowering AI applications, announced today its participation in the 8th annual Hacktoberfest event sponsored by DigitalOcean!
In 2014, DigitalOcean initiated Hacktoberfest with the idea of celebrating open source software projects. Through the years, the event has steadily grown from tens to thousands of participants. This, years the month-long event looks to grow to over 200,000 active participants!
Starting October 1st, everyone from seasoned developers to students, code newbies and tech writers to UX designers, can contribute to open source communities and develop their skills, with the perks of winning limited edition swag and more.
There are a lot of ways to contribute to the Milvus project - you don't have to be a code superstar to contribute! In fact, you don't even need an extensive background or long list of skills in order to help out. Are you a great writer or editor, awesome! Do you like to create graphics or illustrations - perfect! Here are a few ways you can make a contribution during the event, along with a list of GitHub "issues" for new contributors to tackle!

Certainly contributing to open source, or the concept of open source, is in esence an embodiment of altruism, but some cool swag doesn't hurt. We have up for grabs exclusive stickers, t-shirts, keyboards and a drone too! Check out the details on our forum page.
DigitalOcean also provides swag for participants, check out the rules from the official Hacktoberfest website.
We recently hosted a virtual Q&A call about Hacktoberfest. You can view the recording here.
