Mattermost Community

Mattermost Hackfest 2019 is underway!

Mattermost Hackfest is back!

Win an exclusive Mattermost hoodie and stickers by making four pull requests between January 26, 2019 and February 28, 2019. The top contributor as chosen by the Mattermost team wins a Samsung Galaxy Watch!

Pull requests can be made to any open issues with the “Hackfest” label in Mattermost-hosted GitHub repositories. (Find more details here.)

Why should I get involved?

Giving back to the open source community is awesome, plus there are awesome prizes up for grabs.

Not only do you get to work on interesting projects and build cool things, you also get to meet incredible people. Whether you’re participating in the Hackfest or not, you can join our weekly developers’ meeting at 8:30 a.m. San Francisco time to learn more about Mattermost, meet the team and ask any questions you might have.

Mattermost uses Go and React. But we have many repositories open for contributions in other languages such as React Native, RST, HTML and JavaScript.

If you’d like to learn more about any of these languages, why not contribute to our project?

Getting started is easy. Learn how to get involved here.

Last Hackfest, @debanshuk won the top contributor award by contributing website link previews and several other amazing enhancements.

Who will win this year’s top contributor award? It might be you.

Check out our open Hackfest issues on GitHub and stop by our contributors’ community channel to get involved and start chatting with other developers.

Happy hacking!
