Libcloud is participating in Hacktoberfest

Github and DigitalOcean are organizing Hacktoberfest again this year.

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software where people are encouraged to contribute to different open source projects. Each user who submits four pull requests to any Github hosted open source project of their choice will receive a free t-shirt.

This year we are also happy to announce that we have been selected as one of the highlighted Python projects which users are invited to check, play with it and contribute to.

We think this is a great opportunity for both, long time users and contributors, but especially people who are new to open source to learn how open source works and participate.

Having said that, we would like to invite anyone who is interested to participate and contribute to our project. You can find more information on contributing to Libcloud in our contribution guide.

For more information about the Hacktoberfest project itself and information on how to sign up, please visit the official website and announcement blog post from Github and DigitalOcean.
